Washington Meets 
Hopkins Today 

Rhinchold's Kicking To Be 
Big Factor 


Washington College's foot ball 
eleven will go into action for its sec- 
ond game of the current season this 
afternoon against Johns Hopkins Un- 
iversity. The Maroon and Black 
gridders, called "fighting midgets" 
by Baltimore sports writers as a re- 
sult of their great showing against 
Ma.-yland Saturday, will be rated as 
having at least an even chance 
against the Blue Jays if they display 
the kind of football they turned 
loose on probably the best grid com- 
bination the University of Maryland 
has put on the field in a decade. 
Much will depend on whether Fritz 
Rhinehold, star punter for the locals 
can continue his sensational punt- 
ing, which drew unstinted praise 
from all those who saw him consist- 
enly outpunt "Shorty" Chalmers of 
Maryland, all-state half-back last 
year. Due to the fact that the Bal- 
timoreans have a more experienced 
and slightly heavier combination 
than the locals, many authorities look 
to the Jays to have a slim edge. Hop- 
kins has the team that carried her 
colors last year, intact and has add- 
ed several new faces to the varsity 
squad, notably Don Kelly, all-Ameri- 
mart lacrosseman of last year who 
will hold down the regular quarter- 
back post for Coach Ray Van Orinan. 
According to reports the pupils of 
Coaches Kibler and Ekaitis will do 
well to watch this man along with 
Captain Doug Turnbull, clever Jay 
' broken field runner. 

With possibly one exception local 
mentors will start the same combi- 
nation against Hopkins that played 
most of the time Saturday at Byrd 
Stadium. Huey, 170 pound end is 
expected to be back in shape by Sat- 
urday and will replace Clements at 
end or possibly Gamber if the latter 
is not in ship-shape by that time. 
Coach Ekaitis expects much from 
Groswith at center and if this fight- 
ing freshman keeps up his previous 
type of work he will give the oppo- 
sition plenty to worry about. 

Coach Ekaitis has added several 
plays to quarterback Robinson's list 
that are calculated to make the local 
attack more effective. Both Kibler 
and Ekaitis declared that with Plum- 
mer continuing his hard bucking and 
Robinson his brainy quarterbacking, 
they were confident of the ability of 
the locals to roll up first downs and 

A. E. Howard 

Mr. E. A. Howard, Secretary of 
the Dupont Co., of Wilmington, Del., 
has accepted the position of Alumni 
Editor for The Washington Elm foi 
the coming school year of 1931-32. 

Mr. Howard, whose interest in 
Washington Cillege caused him to do- 
nate the portrait of The Reverend 
Dr. Francis Waters, twice President 
of Washington College, graduated in 
1904 with the degree of bachelor of 
arts. He was one time Editor of 
The Washington Collegian and his 
file of the college paper is complete 
from 1900 to the present day. 

Wade Bounds '22 chemistry professor 
To Give Prize 

Wade Goldsborough Bounds, '22, 
President of the Washington College 
Alumni Association for 1930-31 will 
give a gold football, it is reported by 
Harry Russell, to "the person that 
does the most to aid football at

On Monday evening the Glee Club 
slipped its moorings and entered the 
annual at full speed along with the 
other activities of the college. In 
addition to the songsters already 
members some new voices were given 
private auditions of which several 
will prove useful. 

Contrary to the custom adhered to 
in the past, we now have an advisory 
director who is not a member of the 
faculty in the person of Mr. Ray- 
mond L. Moffett, sometime student 
at Washington College. His pres- 
ence will give to the Club the ad- 
vantage of his training in various 
fields of music. Miss Russell has a- 
gain resumed her post at the piano 
and has proved ready, as always, to 
give the result of her fruitful exper- 
ience in music. 


Scene Of Sketches Is 1847 

The Mt. Vemon Literary Society 
held its regular weekly meeting Wed- 
nesday, Sept. 30th. Alice Dole, and 
Edwin Coulbourn were elected to! 
fill the vacancies on the Board of Cur-p 

The setting of the program was 
Mt. Vernon in 1847, the year the so-, 
ciety was founded. The partici- 
pants dressed in costumes appropri- 
ate to the period. The main feature 
was a speech denouncing ihe one-' 
year coeducational experiment being 
made by the College authorities. , 

The program consisted of the fol- 
lowing numbers: 

Quartette : Branf ord, Coulbourn, 
Shriven, Harris. 

Talk. "A Gem of the Chesapeake", 
Walter Branford. 

• Vocal Solo: "An Old Fashioned 
Garden", Theoodsia Chapman. 

"Should W. C. Remain Coeduca- 
tional?", Robert Carey. 

Musical Recitation: "The Patch- 
work Quilt", Emily Jewell. 

At the close of the program, ap- 
proximately twenty-five new members! 
were taken into the society. 

Wade G. Bound* 

Mr. Russell, editor of the Chester- 
town Enterprise, recently received 
the communication from Mr. Bounds 
in which the idea was suggested to 
him for his comment. Although the 
exact conditions under which it can 
be won have not been completely de- 
cided it is believed that the award 
will be available to any person whe- 
ther a player or not. The require- 
ment will be that the recipient has 
given the most beneficient aid to the 
present football situation at the col-

Ex-Washington Grad Is Now 
Physical Director 

The new head of the Department 
of Chemistry, Dr. Buxton, it is rui 
ored, is endeavoring to introduce at 
Washington a complete course 
Physical Chemistry. This will be the 
first time that any such work has 
been offered, and if the rumor ii 
rect this course will vll the only gap 
now existing in the successive courses 
in Chemistry, 

Dr. Buxton fills the vacancy loft 
by the death of Dr. Errol Fox. 

Dr. K. Carpenter 
To Teach Here 

Dr. Kathleen E. Carpenter of the 
Science Department, comes to us dir- 
ectly from McGill University, Mon- 
treal, where she was lecturing on 
Animal Ecology. Prof. Carpenter was 
lecturer in Zoology in the University 
of Wales for five years. For another 
five years she was connected with 
the British Ministry of Agriculture, 
and Fisheries, in charge of investi- 
gating the pollution of Welsh trout 
and salmon streams. Dr. Carpenter 
has published a book on Biology en- 
titled "Life In Inland Streams," pub- 
lished in London and New York, in 
1928. From 1928 to 1930 she was 
mainly interested with Physiologi- 
cal research work at Harvard Uni- 
versity and the University of Illi- 

A native Englishwoman, Dr. Car- 
penter is delighted with Eastern 
Maryland, which she had never visit- 
ed before, and looks forward to a 
pleasant year. 

Mr. John E. Davis, senior physicnl 
director n( tlu' Veteran's Hospital on 
Perry's Point addressed the college 
assembly Thursdny. October 1st on 
the subject, of "Physical Training as 
an Aid for Mental Illness." 

Tho problem of mental illness is a 
great one, said Mr. Davis, because 
of the large cost it entails the gov- 
ernment and becnuse the numher of 
mentally ill is so great that they nl- 
ready equal the entire enrollment of 
all the colleges and universities in 
the country. This "submerged ten- 
th," as thoj are called, come into this 
stute because of mal-adjustment to 
their environment, poor heredity, and 
the increasing speed of our daily life. 
| These men and women should bo 
thought of as sick persona and not 
as pariahs and outcasts. It is thin 
latter attitude that so often hinders 
their final recovery, and leads, in 
some cases, to acts of violence. They 
I should always be allowed to return 
! to their former social and economic 
positions when they are pronounced

about a recovery, especially in the

lions of the coming college year: 

Vases of dementia praecox, by instill- 
ing a new enthusiasm for living. Un- 
like a physical illness, however, these 
people can be aided by others than

On* of our most recent alumnae — 
tendered the Elm with a letter con- 
taining much news of some of last 
year's class. This alumna, — I like 
(hat word — Elizabeth Mace, is teach- 
ing at East New Market and insists 
that she is enjoying her work. It 
seems that one of Professor Makos-

We have been connected with The ELM now for some two 
years and in that time we have heard one bit of criticism 
leveled at the paper that, is, to our minds, decidedly worth- 
while. Not that there has never been any criticism. Grey 
hairs on the young heads and wrinkles on the noble brows of 
other editors testify that there has. But out of all this has 
come, ;is we have said, one excellent criticism. It is that The 
ELM should hnve a definite policy by which it should always 
be guided. We intend to attempt this; we are a serious youth 
With a purpose. And if we fail blame it on evil companions 
iin.! the curse of drink. 

First and foremost in our policy will be to present all the 
news there is in an unbiased fashion. 

Secondly, we have that portion of our columns marked 
OPEN FORUM lor the expression of student opinion with the 
usual, reasonable restrictions. 

Thirdly, to any faculty member, administrator, or friend of 
the college that feels the urge for self-expression come upon 
him we will give suitable space with the usual, reasonable re- 
si rictions. 

Fourthly, in the editorial columns we will attempt to com- 
ment as fairly as we can on all student activities and things con- 
cerning them. Here, we have to admit, our policy forming 
suffers a severe blow. Editorially we wave no banners and 
take no stands. We are not for larger beer mugs, compulsory 
Bible reading, better lectures, or any other cause. It has al- 
ways been the custom to have editorials in newspapers and we 
are continuing it, probably, because we enjoy doing it. 

Lastly, — and this is the most important — The ELM will 
try to provide for those rare souls that enjoy newspaper work 
a good deal of labor and some excellent fun.

Many Still Co To Jail In England For 
Debt Default 

Sir Edward Parry, in the Man- 
chester Guardian Weekly, writes as 
follows: "Mr. Justice Swift was 
shocked to learn that no fewer than 
2419 persons were imprisoned in 
Briton for debt last year. Yet 
there are still people who believe that 
imprisonment for debt is abolished 
in this country, as it has been in 
France, Germany, Scotland, and 
many states of America, communi- 
ties which in this respect are more 
advanced in social legislation than 

"The county court act is thought 
clear, that only where an offender is 
able to pay and continually refused 
is jailed. I know that some such be- 
lief is held by laymen, but it is not 
the law. In both county courts and 
magistrates' courts citizens are im- 
prisoned for debt — or, if you prefer,

Freshman probably receive more bad advice than anyone 
with the possible exception of seniors at graduation. It seems 
to be the custom; everyone knows more than a freshman and 
all are panting to inform him. Yet like these others we too are 
yearning to commit the same sin. So Freshman — out with 
your notebooks and assume a serious demeanor! Let the fol- 
lowing become your precepts — and thus be true Washington- 

1. One must always complain about the food at the cafe- 
teria. A haughty silence is permitted to seniors but freshmen 
must bray in the approved manner. 

2. Assume an attitude of cynicism towards studies. Nev- 
er allow an expression of interest in studies to pass your lips.; 
"I never crack a book" is the password of good fellowship. 

3. Draw pictures on your notebooks. Don't attempt; 
such childish things as pictures labeled "teacher." Now that 1 
you are in college be dignified! Sketches similar to those in | 
College Humor, signs reading "closed for the day," "Rock Hall' 

bound," and " is a Reid Hall cadet" are all acceptable. 

The bookstore will furnish colored notebooks with a picture of 
a boy in a slicker for inspiration. 

4. Don't mind the sophomores. You'll be working off an 
inferiority complex some day too. 

5. Finally never mind what happens here. It always 
sounds much better when you tell it to the folks back home. 

Follow these rules and when the mill turns around four 
times out you will hop a bright and shiny college boy just like 
all the rest. Bon voyage!

Overproduction Of Street Music 

Music has power to soothe, but 
much too often it may have the op- 
posite effect. Take Bayswater, a 
quiet section of London. Bagpipers, 
flutists, and piccolo players haunt its 
streets loudly playing their instru- 

Unemployment has prompted 
many Britons to exploit their musi- 
cal talents. In Piccadilly Circus 
choirs of Welsh miners sing as they 
march along. A smart well-drilled 
band of ex-soldiers blares its brasses 
against unemployment. Individual 
ministers, players on postable organs 
and small groups of musicians fre- 
quent the suburban districts. When 
Bayswater was treated ti a succes- 
sion of a cornetist — playing his ov- 
erture at 8 A. M. — a mouth organ 
tist, a melodion player, a saxophon- 
:, a violinist, and a baritone with 

portable piano, the residents ap- 
■aled to the authorities. 

It may be necessary for Bayswater 
to add to its street signs, "Organs 
and street criers prohibited," a spec- 1 
ific list of all the disturbers of its ' 
peace. — N. Y. Times. I 

Apparently this country is lucky 
with its apple selling complex for its 
unemployment, bot nevertheless the 
residents of Bayswater would prob- 
ably be right at home in the vicinity 
of Middle Hall.

In Marseille last week a large in- 
quisitorial fishwife elbowed her way 
toward the gangplank of the S. S. 
Rajputana to see what the gawking 
irowd was staring at. Having rea- 
ched a point of vantage she sudden- 
ly recoiled in disgust. 

"Quel Horreur!" cried she. "A 
man in lingerie!" 

The man in lingerie was none oth- 
er than that pious midget, the Ma- 
hatma Mohandas Karmachand Ghand- 
hi. Perspiring porters rushed ashore 
with St. Ghandhi's chattering collec- 
tion of stew pans, his mattress, his 
cans of goats' milk and his suitcase. 
But there were no Pourboires for the 
porters from the Mahatma, 

"I am as poor as a churc hmosuea 

"I am as poor as a church r ;ouse," 
said he, flashing a toothless si. ; le. "I 
have nothing for you. Besides don't 
want to bribe you for performing a 
public duty."

The necessity of patiently stand- 
ing in a long line outside the cafe- 
teria before luncheon is not at all a 
pleasant way to begin one's mid-day 

Last year the cafeteria cooperated 
with the student body by arranging 
the lunch hour from 11:30 until 
12:15, thus giving a longer lunch 
period, and equalizing the serving of 
the students. So far this year we 
have been forced to stand, idly wait- 
ing for the doors to open at 12:10, 
a full ten minutes after the final dis- 
missal from the classrooms. In my 
opinion, and in the ipinions of scores 
of my fellow students this is very un- 
fair to those who take advantage of 
the brief period between lunch and 
their 1:15 class for preparation of 
their recitation. Furthermore, it is 
the unnecessary waiting outside the 
cafeteria which so slows down the ser- 
vice of the students in line, that if 
one is not among the first, he is 
quite sure not to leave until 12:40 
or perhaps 12:60. 

My suggestion to the management 
of the College cafeteria is that the 
meal schedule for the noon-day meal 
be reverted back to that of last year 
which, everyone will say, was most 
satisfactory and efficient.

George E k a i t i s 
New Grid Coach 

Trio Of Washington Grid Stalwarts 

W. M. C. Star Installs Harlow 

George Ekaitis, of Atlantic Cit 
and a graduate of Western Maryla* 
College, is the new head coach of La 
crosse and assistant coach of football 
at Washington, succeeding "Gus" 
Crothers who returned to his law 
studies at U. of Md. Mr. Ekaitis 
was quarterback and best bet on the 
All-Maryland foot ball team picked 
by Baltimore sports authorities last 
year. He was also a member of this 
same team the two preceding years 
and was intercollegiate light-heavy- 
weight champion of the East in box- 
ing last year. Besides these sports, 
Mr. Ekaitis was a varsity member of 
Western Maryland's Lacrosse team 
for three years and last year was 
student coach there. Upon his grad- 
uation last June he was given the 
h<?nor of being voted "best all around 
college man" by his fellow students. 

Washington College is particularly 
fortunate in securing a coach who 
has such a thorough knowledge of 
foot ball and sports in general, as 
Ekaitis unquestionally does. 

"Dick" Harlow, coach of Western 
Maryland, said Ekaitis was one of 
the best students of football he had 
ever known, while sports writers 
credit him with not having called one 
wrong play during his two years of 
quarter-backing at Western Mary- 

Head Coach Tom Kibler has turn- 
ed over the backfield to Ekaitis alto- 
gether and Ekaitis has installed the 
Harlow system in full on Washing- 
ton field.

Sports Notions

A plucky Washington College

College Park Inst Saturday but fin-

ed to defensive tactics throughout

| possible for them to break through 
I the bulky Maryland line. However 
oil the several oflensive plays tried 
Captain Plummer made some credit- 
able gains. 

"Fritz" Rcinhold, sturdy Washing- 
ton back displayed some excellent 
place punting which kept the ball in 
Maryland territory most of the game. 
Time after time be made kicks which 
went out of bounds on the five or ten 
yard lines. 

Maryland's first score came in the 
second qunrtcr when Woods, the 
quarterback van 80 yards for u touch- 
down. The second touchdown was 
scored by Chalmers who, after the 
ball had been carried to the five yard

football game with the pupils of Kib-

a result had their pride "knocked in-

one sports authority who saw the 
game. The Terrapins crawled just 
a little too slowly to subdue the fight- bunch of maroon and black grid- 
ders in the manner which they had 
expected to. One big factor in the 
showing of the locals was the fact 
that safety man Poppleman of Mary-

Professor Of Languages 

Thought is almost a new experi- 
ence after ii vacation of an entire 
Hummer's duration, albeit V editor 
insists on Bending the paper to press. 
Speaking Of thought* — there lire 

many different onoa on the campua 
lit present. The Benfors ore on the 
home-stretch. Some are glad, and 
the othera are glad, hut at the same 
time a few are wishing they could 
make » fresh start. On the other 
hand the freihmen are not quite mire 
of the whys and wherefores as yet. 
Siime wonder what to do in college; 
some wonder what they don't have 
to do; some don't wonder; HO won- 
der, It'll nil come out In the Wash. 

Seriously, I here are many new 
things on which lo reflect — (he Mid- 
dle Hall recoptlon room, signs on the 
eampus, a new football coach, BOme 
new teachers, n clock in the library, 
freshmen. Ymi may not think so, 
hut. it was through no ulterior mo- 
tive that the signs were plaeed by. 
the road. They will serve n much-! 
needed purpose. No longer will the 

nondorings, meditations, and reflec- 
tions, of promenading students be 
rudely interrupted by inquiring mot- 
orists who wish to know what asylum 
or other sanctuary they are passing. 
In any ease this kind of service will 
be appreciated only by a few. The 
others would rather reiterate con- 
stantly lo applicants for marriage li- 
censes that their destination is fur- 
ther down the road. 

The present freshman class looks 
like a good one, despite the fact that, ' 
at times, looks are deceiving. They 
seem to have had no disciplinary 
training as yet. The girls seem to 
have beea made to understand that 
they are freshmen, but the boys be- 
lieve tho rat rules are merely some- 
thing to fill Up another page in the 
Handbook. Maybe they will be 
taught before the year is out.

Philosophy To Be Offered 

Professor Of Philosophy 

With the beginning of the fall 
term the curriculum Committee of the 
Faculty hns announced the introduc- 
tion of five new courses, and nlso 
other extensive changes in the out- 
lines and arrangements of several of 
the older, and established studies. 

First among the new courses is to 
be found a course which is known as 
"Philosophy 1." This course marks 
the introduction of philosophy as an 
organized study at Washington. 
Along with this study is found a new ' 
three hour course in Scientific Gei-, 
man. In previous years Scientific 
German was only a one hour course. I 
Since tho number of pre-medical stu- 
dents nt Washington hns been on the 
increase in recent years it has been 
deemed advisable to increase the 
scope of the scientific German so as 
lo mnke a course, complete in every 
phase. For the benefit of Fresh- 
men who have had little or no pre- 
paration in the fundamentals of 
G rammer prior to their admission to 
Washington, there has been organiz- 
ed a new English 1 section which 
will be known as English Id. This 
course aims to give the student a 
rigid training in the elements of 
English Grammer. Also the Depart- 
ment of Economies hns announced 
two new courses. First, there is a 
course in Rural Sociology and Rural 
Economics. These colirses aim to 
introduce to the student the prob- 
lems of life in rural communities. 
This study hns not been outlined as 
a course for farmers, or strictly for 
those who live in rural communities. 
Why shouldn't all of us understand 
the problems of the people who art. 
the producers of our food? The De- 
partment of Education has also one 
new topic, that of "Educational So- 
ciology." This new course should 
be of intense interest to all those who 
intend entering the teaching profes- 
sion after their graduation.

Miss Elizabeth 
Elected T o 


"Shadow* On Tho Rock" 
Willa Cother 

For the first time since 1927 Wil- 
la Cather has broken her silence, and 
presented to the world a great book, 
that we cannot help pronouncing a 
modern classic. For it is of the 
same superb vintage from which such 
books as "Death Comes for the Arch- 
ibishop" emanated, and which un- 
doubtedly holds a great harvest for 
the future. 

The setting of "Shadows On The 
Rock" is for Miss Cather a new one 
— Quebec in the last years of Count 
Frontenac's life, and she recaptures 
the very tone and feeling of the sev- 
enteenth century in this quaint 
French city, built on a rock on the 
mighty St. Lawrence, to such a de- 
gree that the reader actually feels a 
part of the picturesque atmosphere. 

The narrative deals with Avclair, 
the widowed apothecary, and his 
young daughter Ceeile — their Lord- 
ships in the newly settled Corada, 
their longing for Old France, and 
finally the supreme happiness that 
cultimates a life of trials and tribu- 
lations. Constantly moving in the 
back ground are two superb char- 
acters; the magnetic Frontenac, and 
the altruistic Bishop Laval. Once 
again Miss Cather has interested her- 
self in the Catholic world, and has 
devoted an entire book to the beau- 
tiful sentiment, and the purity of a 
simple folk, whose religion is mag- 
nificent in tradition. 

"Shadows On The Rock" is a book 
which is authentically the work of a 
genius, so immediately perceptible as 
a masterpiece, so emotionally beau- 
tiful and elegant in style, as to be 
great, even to a reader unfamiliar 
with America's foremost female 


A home meeting of the Girls' Stu- 
dent Council was held Monday even- 
ing, September 22nd. Elizabeth 
Schmidt was elected a Junior mem- 
ber to replace Janelle Sexton.

Protestant Episcopal Church 
To Hold 300th Anniversary 

One of the most important features 
of the celebration of the 300th anni- 
versary of the founding of the 
Protestant Episcopal Church of 
America which will take place at 
Metapcako on Kent Island, October 
15, will be the re-enactment of the 
famous convention which was held 
in Chestertown in 1784 which unani- 
mously adopted the present name of 
the denomination. 

At the convention which has been 
styled (he Continental Congress of 
the church, prominent clergy nnd 
aymen from nil sections of Mory- 
land gathered in Chestertown to dis- 
•uss the state of the church and to 
rive the denomination a name. 

The presiding officer of the con- 
dition waa Dr. William Smith, tho 
founder of Washington College, which 
was established in 1782, and who whs 
at, the time rector of old Chester 
parish. Following a prolonged dis- 
cussion Dr. Simon Wilmer, one of 
thi' leading members of the vestry of 
Old St. Paul's pnrish, which wns nt 
tho time a part of Chester parish, 
moved that the name of the new or- 
ganization should be The Protestant 
Episcopal Church of America. Tho 
motion was unanimously adopted ami 
during the following year a conven- 
tion of the Church in America was 
called to meet in New Jersey under 
the title adopted at the Chestertown 

Twenty laymen from Chester parish 
and three clergymen of the county 
attired in colonial costumes will re- 
enact tho scenes of the famous 
Chestertown convention at the 300th 
anniversary to be held at MetaiieiiUe 
October IB. Tho Rev. Charles L. At- 
water, present pastor of Chester 
parish will portray the character "f 
Dr. William Smith. The Rev. John 
White, rector of Old St. Paul's parish, 
will enact the part played by Dr. 
Simon Wilmer, while the Rev. Dr. 
Sewell S. Hepburn, venerable rector 
emeritus of I. U. parish, which at 
tho time of the holding of the 1784 
convention was a part of Chester 
parish, will have a conspicuous part 
in the portrayal. The forthcoming 
celebration of the founding of the 
church at Metapeake which has been 
selected at the site of the occasion 
because of its religious association 
with Maryland's first settlement on 
Kent Island by Captain William 
Claiborne in 1631, will be one of the 
most colorful religious gatherings 
ever held in Maryland. 

A chorus of 400 voices is being 
trained to sing the hymns of the 
church, while important scenes in 
connection with the colonial history 
of the denomination will be re- 
enacted by several hundred people 
from all sections of the State. The 
U. S. Naval Academy Band will head 
the pageant, which is expected to at- 
tract an attendance of more than 
10,000 people. 

Large Group Attend First 
Y. W. C. A. Meeting Of Year 

© 1 Ml. The Am r Hon Tobacco Co .Mfra. 

Unusual interest and enthusiasm 
in the Young Women's Christian As- 
sociation was shown Monday when 
so many of the Freshmen and uppei- 
classmen attended the first program 
of the school year. 

All those present thoroughly en- 
joyed the talk given by Mrs. Harry 
Wright, wife of the pastor of the 
Chestertown Methodist Episcopal 
Church. Mrs. Wright's talk dealt 
with the life of Mary and Martha and 
their companionship with Jesus. She 
compared their life with the average 
college girl. If our speakers con- 
tinue to be as instructive as Mrs. 
Wright, we feel that the "Y" is doing 
its share. 

Membership cards have been dis- 
tributed to all the girls, and the Y. 
W. C. A. hopes for a large member- 
ship. Everyone is invited to join 
this association. Without the co- 
operation of the girls the cabinet can 
make no progress.

New College Sign Made 

Tourists passing through Chester- 
town will no longer wonder what the 
structures are which stand on the 
upper portion of Washington Aven- 
ue. The college has placed two very 
attractive signs, one at each end of 
the campus. These signs bear the in- 
scription, "Washington College, 
Founded 1782," They were design- 
ed by Henry Hopkins and made by 
a firm in Baltimore. They not only 
serve to point out the college but 
also add much to the appearance of 
the campus.

A hair in the head is worth two 
in the comb and it's appalling the 
number of good whiskers are lost 
each morning. Ever notice how fast 
hair grows? The mystery is now 
partly solved by the results of a 
Research Institute. "Basal metabol- 
ism tests" they state, "show that the, 
average woman gives off ten per 
cent less heat than a man of equal 
weight, height and age." To radiate 
off this ten per cent of extra heat, 
kind nature- gave man whiskers. 
They not only save the expense of aj 
necktie, but act as an awning to pre- 1 
vont sunburn, a hide-out for reveal-, 
ing facial expressions, and a front, 
line of defense to harpoon insects on 
the bristle tips. 

A man that's bald — or whose bait- 
is not — spends a lot of time mopping, 
up the water that's squeezed out of 
a man with a full suit of hair and 

his head and beardless chops. While 
a fancy vest of whiskers saves val- 
uable time because nature cools his 
skin. Each hair set in his skin col- 
lects the heat from the blood around 
its base, and conducts it up along 
its shaft like a spoon in a hot toddy. 
With thousands of these distrib- 
uting their heat to the passing 
breezes, it's obvious a cool head and 
whiskers go together. These air- 
cooled motors with flanges all over 
them work the same way — just in- 
creases the cooling surface. The 
principle isn't new, for man bus had 
a hair-cooled head since the time of 
Adam. If these results are correct, 
we have been shaving off the origi- 
nal noiseless, costless, lifetime cool- 
ing system ! "What fools these

Noticed On Kibler Field 

Some close observer of foot ball 
activities on Kibler field noticed that 
there is no tendency whatever on the 
part of Washington backs to dis- 
agree with the opinion of Coach 
Ekaitis, probably due to the former 
Western Maryland's star's thorough 
knowledge of the gridiron sport. 
However, this same observer hinted 
that this might be partly due to the 
fact that, to the ordinary observer, 
Ekaitis looks to be in as good shape 
as he was the day he won the inter- 
collegiate championship of the East 
by a one round knockout.

Martin Speaks 
To Assembly 

Interest In World Events Aim 
Of Speech 

The Thursday Assembly, October 
1 5th was addressed by Henry D. Mar- 
tin, a former Eastern Shoreman now 
resident of Baltimore. Mr. Martin 
is a member of the Maryland and 
Baltimore Bar and is president of the 
Eastern Shore Society. 

Upon opening the address Mr. Mar- 
tin stated that he had no particular 
lopic but hoped to open up several 
lines of thought. 

He began by giving a synopsis of 
ll u book by Chas. B. Lewis on the 
life of Admiral Buchanan, the first 
superintendent of the United States 
Naval Academy founded in 1848. He 
commanded the Merrimac in its 
great naval battle with the Monitor. 
At the close of the war Admiral 
Buchanan retired to his estate on the 
Miles River in Talbot County, Md. 

Mr. Martin then gave a list of 
great figures in American History 
summarizing their points of view as 
to having a definite aim and ideal in 
life, pointing out how the student of 
today could profit by the ideas of 
these Statesmen. 

The next feature of the talk wasl 
a discussion of the development of; 
the constitution and a discourse on | 
States Rights. Several minutes were i 
devoted to praise of Dr. Howell's ve-' 
cent book "The Government of Kent 

Concluding his speech Mr. Martin, 
pointed out that he had attempted 
to open new channels of thought in 
the minds of his listeners and to cre- 
ate an interest in world problems.

The Adelphia Literary Society 
held its usual weekly meeting on 
Wednesday, October 7. in the Chapel

The Young Women's Christian As- 
sociation are making arrangements 
for a financial campaign to be held 
from October 19 to 21. The goal 
has been set at fifty dollars. Thi t : 
amount is needed in order that the 
association may carry out its plans 
for the year. 

A committee has been appointed 
to solicit the faculty and the friends 
of the college, some of which have 
already agreed to help. The church- 
es are taking special collection so 
that they might do their share to- 
ward the promotion of such an or- 
ganization. The students will be 
urged to purchase tags as they have 
in previous years. 

The finance committee members 
are K. Bishop, G. Culley, W. Dahn, 
F. Rosin, E. Willis, G. Carvel, M. 
Parks and A. Storey. 

In order that the contributors may 
know just what the money is to be

SATURDAY, OCT. 17, 1931 


We have never been a librarian and probably never will be. 
Our only knowledge of libraries consists of a fairly regular pa- 
tronage of them. In some libraries we even have to ask assist- 
ance when we use the tiling cabinets. We know nothing about 
the, apparently, very complex library system at Washington 
College, The ways in which decisions are reached by the lib- 
lary committee are admitedly far beyond our grasp. 

Thus you see we have no light whatsoever to criticise the 
college Miliary and everything we say should be discounted as 
Ui€ fallacies of an immature and uniformed collage boy. 

We think that the library should be opened to students not 
only on week days and nights and Saturday afternoons but also 
on Sunday evenings. We petition for this rather modest change 
because we believe that this is what we are more liable to get. 
ll is not what, we would like to see. 

Along with all other right thinking people we have always 
been under the impression that a library should always be j 
available, ll Washington College hopes to spread culture I 
about our old Eastern Shore and way stations it will materially ! 
aid its hopes if it makes its library a place where people go to 
browse through books besides to do home work. 

The argument for Sunday evenings is very apparent. It 
is necessary Uiv the preparation of Monday's lessons and the ex- 
pense of having one extra librarian once a week for two hours 
is so minute that it can not be considered. 

We wish to submit this to the authorities that govern all 
such changes in the spirit of co-operation. We are both striv- 
ing for the good of the college and open comment is the path to 
this aim. 

The report of the Associated Press 
correspondent at Knoxville, Tenn.,

We are a great respecter of tradition. Men have worn

"Beat Whoosis. sir" was going unnoticed. Never was there a 
glint of determination in a player's eye; never did a non-parti- 
cipant break into cheering when we let loose our cheery "Beat 
Whoosis, sir." 

If we were a player we wouldn't like this custum. After 
several repetitions we would begin to think that these people 
were doubting our prowess, and as for the non-combatant it on- 
ly serves to constantly remind him that alma mater scorns his 
services in this manly game and that the right half-back is mak- 
ing time with his girl. 

So to those that ordain such things we humbly petition that 
this tradition be abandoned. Then we might bet Whoosis this 
week and — who knows — old Whatsis might fall the next. 

^N more than a hundred 
Floodlighted fields, foot- 
ball is being played 
and practiced in the evening 
hours, before larger audiences 
than ever before — with fewer 
injuries and in better conformity 
with classroom duties. 

This constructive revolution in 
athletics is largely the work of 
college-trained engineers — 
young men personally familiar with the 
needs of college and school. They are 
dedicating the technical experience 
gained in the General Electric Test De- 
partment to the practical service of under- 
graduate athletics — designing and instal- 
ling floodlighting equipment for virtually 
every sport— football, baseball, hockey, 
tennis, and track. 

Other college men "in the General Electric 

organization have specialized in street- 

lighting and floodlighting projects, or in 
the electrical equipment of industries and 
mines or of immense power stations,- some 
are designing and applying electric 
apparatus to propel ocean liners and 
locomotives. All are engaged in the 
planning, production, or distribution of 
G-E products and so are performing a 
work of national betterment and creat- 
ing for themselves recognized spheres 
of personal influence.

Washington's best effort to score 
came in the second period when

the officials and the ball was brought 
back to the scrimmage line where i'

In midfield the Shoremen played an 
ordinary defensive game, but just at

dangerous territory the line braced 
itself and refused to allow any of the

goal and the Hopkins team had three

games of the season. Hopkins is in-

Washington will meet it's tradi-

Washington College's gridders will 
meet Haverford today in n pretty 
evenly matched contest, however, the 
locals should be favored to win. The 
reasons for this statement are not 
hard to find. The pupils of Kibler 
and Ekaitis played fine football a- 
gainst a great U. of Md. eleven and 
continued this good work against one 
of the best grid combinations John's 
Hopkins has ever put on the field, 
Consequently, the let down in the

Black should be set to go at top speed 
again. Also Haverford has u team

this fact coupled with the above rea-

the Kiblerites should be a touchdown

gridiron today,

Flowers In World Series 

Jake Flowers, former Washington 
College second baseman, held down 
the hot corner for the World's Cham- 
pions St. Louis Cardinals during the 
past world series. Flowers, who 
started the post baseball season with 
Brooklyn, was traded to the Card- 
inals 'during the summer. In the 
fourth game of the series, Flowers 
was struck in the face by a hit 
ground ball and was out of the line- 
up for the next game. Howevei

more that) held their own, nnd espec- 
ially in the last quarter did they bHow 
re ults of their fine tutoring by the 
coaching staff, although no aerioua 
threat at scoring was made. 

The game opened with Lord kick- 
ing off for Washington. Once in 
possession of the ball, Swarthmore

the line Tor five and ton yard gains. 
Within five minutes they had Bcored 
a touchdown on a lino buck. The 
kick for extra point was good. Wash-

Swarthmore run the ball back past 
mid-field, After a few plays, Wash- 
ington College's goal line was again 
crossed, after a short pass had been 
thrown to the one yard fine. 

Swarthmore's last touchdown was 
scored on another line buck early in 
the second quarter. For the first 
time, try for extra point was missed 
and the scoring for the day was ov-

want to loom from them. Those 
Btudenta exhausted every possible 
source to obtain vast knowledge of 
any project i lit-y wore assigned. 
There were no doors in the dormi- 
tories which hud given way to pedal 
pressure. Neither were there win- 
dows whlen hud crashed under the 
shock of (lying milk bottles. For 
Mies.- students Bought to learn by ra- 
tional observation and instruction. =" 
Physical experiments were tried un- 
der conditions which did not admit 
draughts through broken barriers. 
Logic was studied to organize and 
make useful the reasoning powers. 
The mathematics were studied to aid 
scientific development. The classics 
w«t.> carefully read to display and 
aid an appreciation of the true, the 
good, and the beautiful. This col- 
logo produced people who wen' moral 
and who wore useful mentally. It it

did so could USB THEIR BRAINS. 
Sineo that time that college less o- 
doutod the modern usage of offering 
n very ilimsy instruction in the de- 
partments named and subslinting an 
altogether too Frail training in a few 
technicalities. The abstractions thut

I..! agility nave nearly disap- 
peared. Now students are turned 
oul who have learned a few techni- 
cal operations to lit very special cases 
but I bey have not learned either 
llui'ibilily or adaptability. We are told 
to specialize lone; before we have un 
opportunity of knowing what we can 
do. Consequently many lives are 
wasted which have been spent in 
learning Borne of the minor details of 
technical brunch before the student 
knows his own capabilities. Afti 
nil, in the performance of the world's 
work, desire is a small portion. The 
ability to do well in some particular 
line is necessary, but how can we de- 
termine thut line without trying 
something? Therefore, the good, 
old-fashioned method of teaching the 
classics, the mathematics, and logic,;

student a flexible mind which was fori

The lower expanse of the campus

sport by the co-eds but I cannot help 
feeling that something more digni-

used by the lacrosse team in theii

Womens Honor Society Elects ELECT CL u B officers 

A special meeting of the Women's 
II,, i, mi Society was held Wednesday. 
Sept. 23rd and the following girls 
were elected to membership: 

Ruth Johnson, class of '32. 

Alice Dole, Ethel Herreia and Ann 
Kreeger, class of '3.3. 

The regular monthly meeting of 
the Society was held Monday, Sept. 
28th. The newly elected members 
were present. The failure of last 
year's society to elect a Vice-Presi- 
dent and Secretary for the current 
year necessitated an election which 
resulted as follows: 

Vice-President — Ruth Johnson. 

Secretory — Alice Dole. 

The purpose of the Women's Hon- 
or Society is to bring together wom- 

en students of the junior and senior 
L'lasses who have maintained a high 
standard of scholarship and leader- 
ship, and who have at all times shown 
their willingness to serve the best in- 
c-r.'sis ,if the college. An average 
scholarship index of at least 2.25 is a 
requisite for eligibility for election. 

The maximum membership is 
twelve: eight seniors and four jun- 
iors. The present membership is 
three seniors and three juniors or , 
only one half the maximum member- 
ship. Members of the junior and 
senior classes still have an opportun- 
ity to raise their indices to the re- 
quired standard so that they will be 
eligible for election at the end of this 

At the suggestion of the Student 
Council to create better conditions 
in Middle Hall and promote better 
fellowship, a meeting of all the none- 
fraternity upper classmen was called 
on Friday, October 9th, at 7 P. M. 
This meeting was called to order by 
George Ekaitis, Head of Middle Hall. 
After an explanation of the purpose 
of this meeting, the election of offi- 
cers ensued. The following men 
were elected: 

p res . — Walter Branford. 

Vice-Pres. — William Wright. 

Sec. — Milton Noble. 

Trees. — Mason Trupp. 

Ser.-at-Arms — Neison Rickards.

It is only proper that an honest 
criticism be given a reply, a reply in 
the same spirit in which the criticism 
was given, and that is the purpose of 
this writing. The criticism in ques- 
tion was the one which appeared in 
the last issue pertaining to the handl- 
ing of the noon meal in the cafeter- 
ia. I presume that an explanation 
is about the only reply possible. 

Everyone concerned would, I am 
sure, prefer to have the noon meal 
start at 11 :45 and close about 12:15, 
Such a period would allow those not 
having eleven o'clock classes to eat 
their lunch before those leaving class 
at 11:55 would be able to get over 
to the cafeteria, as was done last 
year; also the waiters would be able 
to finish tneir work sooner. Yet, 
there is one difficulty and only one 
which presents itself and thus makes 
it necessary to start the meal after 
the eleven o'clock class closes — and 
that reason is that there are not 
enough waiters available at 11:45 
to handle the work in the cafeteiia. 
On Monday, only two men are avail- 
able; on Tuesday, only three men are 
available; on Wednesday, only four 
men are available; on Friday, only 
two men are available; but on Satur- 
day, six men are available. However, 
four of those six men are football 
men and are of necessity called away 
on Saturday, and it has not been 
deemed advisable to change the hour 
for that one day. 

There has come to the writer's 
attention many and varied comments 
concerning the cafeteria situations. 



menus,, etc., this year, and it is only 
thru the cooperation of the students 
in their just criticism that conditions 
may become just as good as possible. 
A good constructive criticism is al- 
ways welcomed by anyone who is de- 
sirous of obtaining the best results 

Another condition arising is the 
necessity of perhaps waiting in line 
during cold weather and wet weath- 
er. Regardless of the time any of the 
meals start, it is a fact that one will 
find some of the students in line be- 
fore that time. Yet, regardless of 
that fact, it is quite possible that 
such a condition may be overcome by 
permitting the gymnasium entrance 
to the cafeteria during wet weather, 
or by serving the students by groups 
or the like. However, the solution 
of that problem will be a matter for 
future consideration.

Popular At W.C. 

Elizabeth Walbert Ranks 
Best With Arrows 

Archery is taking on the aspect of 
a tournament. There is an increas- 
ing large number out for this sport, 
and a daily improvement is shown in 
the shooting. Some excellent shots 
have been discovered, chief of whom 
are Elizabeth Walbert, who has a 
score of 55 out of a round of 24 
arrows, and Mildred Tryzno, with 50 
out of 24. Evelyn Walbert also has 
a good score, 48 points out of a round 
of 24 arrows. 

The girls have been slow in com- 
ing out for hockey this fall, but it is 
hoped they will be all out by the end 
of the week.

Shoremen To 
Face Strong 
Drexel Team 

SATURDAY, OCT. 31, 1931 



Campus Leaders Chosen 

Injuries Will Handicap Kib- 
ler's Gridder? 

Today the Washington College foot- 
ball team journeys to Philadelphia to 
play the strong Drexel aggregation. 
So far this year the home team has 
played excellent football but they are 
sure to hit a snag when the Shore- 
men buck up against them. 

The Washington team was hit pret- 
ty hard in the Mt. St. Mary's game 
last Saturday, when Carozza, an end, 
suffered a torn ligament in one knee, 
as well as a broken nose, and Ward, 
star tackle, twisted both ankles. Both 
of these regulars will-not Jje able to 
play. "Dick" Gamber Wh'ile suffer- 
ing from a bad ankle will probably 
appear in the starting lineup. 

At the end positions there will be 
Plumme- and Gainber, the former 
substituted to that place from the 
backfield because of Carozza's disa- 
bility. At tackle "Johnnie" Lord will 
replace Ward while Blisard remains 
in his regular berth. Nicholson and 
Dickerson will play the guard posi- 
tions and Groswith will pass the ball 

In the backfield Dobkins will back 
up the line and if he continues the 
same type of defensive play exhibit- 
ed in the game last Saturday, he will 
be a constant source of worry to the 
Drexel backs. MacKensie, a Fresh- 
man, who was unable to cwne out for 
the team until recently will probably 
start in the backfield. He is a big 
man and should add the recess and 
man power to the Maroon and Black 
backfield. "Ollie" Robinson will call 
signals and "Fritz" Rhinehold will be 
his running mate. Rhinehold will do 
most of the kicking. 

Drexel is reported to have a fairly 
strong team this year especiaLy on 
the aerial offense. If Washington 
wants to stop them they will have to 
discover a way to check this method 
of attack. 

Dr. J. S. William Jones, called for 
the first time of the college year, on 
Thursday, October 29th, a meeting 
of the Dean's cabinet. In this meet- 
ing Dr. Jones announced the aims of 
the organization which were he said, 
"to discuss the various problem aris- 
ing on the campus and to act on them 
in an advisory capacity." In no way 
will this group of men who represent 
each fraternity, clubs, and organiza- 
tion on the Hill interfere with The 
Student Council, or the Faculty Dis- 
cipline Committee. 

The fourth Thursday of every 
month was set for the meeting date 
and after a short informal discussion 
the meeting came to an end. 

The men that make up the cabinet 
are; Oliver E. Robinson, President of 
The Student Council, President of 
The Alpha Kappa fraternity, Presi- 
dent of the Blue Key Fraternity, 
President of the Adelphia; Harold 
Shriver, President of the Cotillion 
Club, President of the Senior Class, 
President of the Phi Sigma Phi Fra- 
ternity; Albert Baker, President of 
The Phi Sigma Tau Fraternity; Wal- 
ter Branford, President of the Non- 
Fraternity Club; Irving S. Ross, Ed- 
itor of The Washington Elm, Editor 
of The Pegasus; DeWitt Clarke, 
President of the Junior Class; Rich- 
ard Gamber, President of the Sopho- 
more Class. 

The meeting of the cabinet was 
held in the offices of the Dean.

Mt. Vernon Society Holds 
Program With Success 

Editor Of "Equal Rights" To 
Address Student Body 

The Mt. Vernon Literary Society 
was indeed fortunate in having sev- 
eral of the world's great artists in- 
terpreted at its regular weekly meet- 
ing Wednesday, October 28th. The 
following artists were present: Pad- 
erewski (Lee Bell); Will Osbourne 
(Frank Jarrell) ; Kreisler (William 
Cornelia); Schurmann Heink (Janet 

Graham McNamee who was sche- 
duled to speak on "Reid Hall" was un- 
able to be present because of a press- 
ing engagement. 

It has been announced by Dr. Fred- 
erick Livingood, Chairman of the 
Faculty Committee on Chapel Speak- 
ers that Mrs. Donald Hooker, Editor 
of EQUAL RIGHTS of Washington, 
D. C, will address the student body 
at the next weekly assembly to be 
held on Thursday, November 5th. 

The text of Mrs. Hooker's speech, 
although it has yet to be announced, 
is believed to concern tlfe part of the 
college man and woman in politics. 
Besides being the editor of a nation- 
ally famous magazine Mrs. Hooker is 
a speaker of some note. 


Oscar Coulbourn In Charge 

Amateur Photographers 
May Have Snapshots Printed 

All amateur photographers that 
have in their possession any pictures 
of activities and important events 
about the campus who would like to 
see them reprinted in THE PEGA- 
SUS are asked to get in touch with 
either John Wagner or Oscar Coul 
bourn concerning them. 

Mr. Oscar Coulbourn, Business 
Manager of The Annual Staff, will 
display to all those interested the 
group pictures taken '.■.y The White 
Photographers du ~ing their recent 
visit to the campus. All group pic- 
tures are on sale at the special stu- 
dent prices which range from fifty 
cents to one dollar. 

The numerous individuals that 
were also taken at that time have not 
arrived as yet from The White labor- 
atories. When they are received by 
the editor a notice to that effect will 
be placed on the bulletin board and 
all may receive their pictures by call- 
ing for them in the Pegasus office. 

Concerning the Junior class picture 
Mr. Coulbourn said when interview- 
ed, "Due to the confusion about the 
time for the picture we will have it 
retaken. We want everyone to be 

Plans Being Made To Have 
Freshman Issue 

It is the hope of THE ELM STAFF 
to have this year a freshman issue of 
tire paper from the writing of the 
copy to the planning of the make-up 
of the different pages will be left en- 
tirely in the hands of the men and 
women that the youngest class elects 
for the job. 

It is the plan of the Editor and the 
Business Manager to obtain permis- 
sion from the Dean of the college to 
hold a meeting of the Freshman class 
for the purpose of electing the 
Freshman Editor and Business Man- 
ager as well as their assistants. If 
this is secured the balloting will pro- 
ceed in the customary manner as pre- 
scribed by the regulations of the Stu- 
dent Council. 

This is being done to further inter- 
est in the school publication as well 
as to furnish numerous members of 
the freshman class excellent experi- 
ence in the handling of a school 
newspaper. The men elected will ap- 
point the other members of the staff 
with the exception of the assistant 
Editor and Business Manager who 
will be elected. 

Because of the proximity of the 
Freshman-Sophomore football game 
and several other events of interest 
about the college it is believed that 
the next issue would be the ideal 

If it is possible the staff will have 
its picture placed in The Pegasus 
along with the picture of their pro- 
duct. Freshman are advised to note 
the members of their class that 
have already had some experience on 
THE ELM so as to assure themselves 
of the best possible paper for their

Bonfire Lights Up Pranks 

Like ghosts in the night the fresh- 
men, clad in multi-colored pajamas, 
streamed from West Hall to parade to 
the girl's dormitories and from there 
to all the professor's houses then tp 
visit Aldie Clements and from there 
to the center of the town where a 
snake dance was performed beneath 
the red glow of the stop light. While 
the freshman were dancing and shouts 
ing down the road the crack of pad- 
dles was heard but not always were 
the underclassmen the goal of the 

After the snake dance was held the 
sophomores ordered the frosh to col- 
let the wood for the bonfire which 
was held on the road bordering the 
duuth side of the campus. The fif- 
teen foot pile of wood lighted up the 
rats as they bowed down in worship 
before the fire. Following their sal- 
utation the freshman performed the 
usual acrobats while the upper class- j 
men cheered and jeered.

SATURDAY, OCT. 31, 1931 


One thing lias been greatly lacking from the campus this 
year whose hiss lias caused this department no moanings and 
nol many tears. We have ambled our leisurely way about the 
campus with great peace of mind and sufficiently at ease to 
pursue our meditations. Naturally we speak of the great hue 
and cry that was raised last year about the necessity for cheer- 
ing Life proceeds along its way more calmly than when fren- 
zied collegians were constantly commanding us to "cheer damn 

( von -■heer." 

Now undoubtedly the boys should be cheered to the last 
echo or last point or whatever boys are cheered to but we were 
always so constituted that organized cheering seemed to us the 
lowest level of inanity. Nothing is more stirring than to hear 
the -sudden mar of a crowd as they rise to their feet.and greet 
a brillianl play and conversely nothing is more artificial and stu- 
pid than the usual rah, rah, rah and siss, boom, bah coming from 
a group of herded freshmen. It is the great collegiate fallacy , 
that such stuff makes the players die with greater eagerness 
I'm alma mater. If it was honestly analysed it would be found 
that it was the mere presence of the crowd and the fact of the 
approaching game that give the player that odd nervous feel- 
ing as he sits in the dressing room. Ask any one and he will 
tell you that the first roar of greeting as he runs on to the field | 
or Moor is what thrills; the rest becomes a blurred background! 
in the excitement of the game. It affects him only when the 
crowd expresses the feelings that are within him. A linesman 
might want to say a tew of the things to his opponent that an' 
excited crowd does but we can assure you that one tackle never 
looks at the other and says "Sis boom bah!" 

But this is all very much aside from the main issue. What, 
we object to is these people telling us that we should cheer. So 
after deep meditation we have come to a solution of the prob- 
lem and for those affected in the same way we will let it out 
here. For each athletic contest we are going to have one fresh- 
man appointed to stand near us during the game and whenever 
a cheer leader or anyone else so effected with the mania ap- 
proaches it will be his duty to jump up and down screaming the 
while in the approved manner. His title will be "The Editor's 
Cheerer" and his reward our love and affection for the remain- 
der of our college days. 


Our trusting belief in the much vaunted power of the press 
is beginning to leave us. Here we spent numerous paragraphs 
on the necessity of a library that was open on Sunday evenings, 
yet when we rushed to William Smith Hall last Sunday to see 
the effect of our labors we found nothing but the darkened cor- 
i idors. 

Well, we have tried to confer the torch of culture on those 
i hat should hold it ; we have tried to light the abysmal darkness 
of the Eastern Shore; and we have failed. Like many of our 
speakers we will close our efforts on this score with a bit of 

Here's to the library, long may it stand, 
Snreading knowledge in a darkened land, 
With papers, magazines and books. 
Cold drafts, hard chairs, and dirty looks. 
Refrain : 

Bend your elbow and tilt your head, 
Twill be the same when we are dead, 
Drink her down boys, drink her -down! 



issue of November, 1931, Mr. Howard 
Willi presents a number of last mes- 
sages of suicides. After several 
pages directed to a morbid portrayal 
i.f lh.' final thoughts in these passion- 
ato lives, Mr. Wolf decides that he 
doesn't know what Ihey signify. He 
gO08 "n; 

"We huve numerous anthologies 
builded from the speeches, state pap- 
ers, journals and autobiographies of 
Presidents, explorers, philosophers, 
poets and patriots, but it seems to 
me that the real voice of the United 
Stales is not to be found in the writ- 
ings of such men, but in the scrib- 
blinga of waitresses, truck drivers, 
beauty parlor operators, stenograph- 
ers, pimps, realtors, taxi drivers, 
morticians, pool hustlers, chiropo- 
dists and bootleggers, 

"There is a generally accepted the- 
ory that the America of these folk is 
inarticulate. I have reason to be- 
lieve that that is an error. The 
Americano seems to me one of the 
gabbiest, fellows among all the races 
of men. If he decides to commit sui- 
cide, he invariably leaves a letter. If 
he wants a woman or if she wants a 
man, the recourse is, often as not, 
the penning of a note to a newspap- 
er lovelorn column. Cast into the 
muddy pool of American thought 
some such rock as a melodramatic 
Lindbergh flight or wholesale death 
by hurricane, fire or shipfoundering, 
ard there will be a splashing geyser 
of poesy sending ripples of sweet 
singing to the furthest border. 

"Of all such documents, 1 am es- 
pecially interested by the suicide 
notes because, when confronted * by 
death, the Americano who goes 
through life talking a pretense usual- 
ly blurts out a truth. And some- 
times, in addition to writing honest- 
ly, he writes well." 

The classroom attitude of some 
students was summed up by Abraham 
Lincoln when he said, "Better to re- 
main silent and be thought a fool than 
to speak and remove all doubt." 



The cosmos is a gigantic fly-wheel 
making two thousand revolutions a

the wheel was set to spinning in ord-

Shoremen Make First Score 
Of Season 


F R S H W I N Mt St. Mary's Trips Washington 
TUG-OF-WAR By Lone Tally In Final Quarter 


In a battle that was for more than 
victory Washington College bowed to 
Haverford on the latters gridiron 
on October 17 by a score of 27 to 7. It 
was a sad blow to the locals to see 
their big chance of getting in the 
win column go sailing away on a ser- 
ies of tough breaks. What little con- 
solation the Shoremen could get out 
of the contest came from the fact 
that they tallied a touchdown and 
scored the extra point that followed. 

Washington got away to a bad start 
when the opening kickoff went astray 
and Haverford had the ball in Wash- 
ington's territory. One play at the 
line was unsuccessful but the second 
went for a touchdown. This tally, 
which came just 48 seconds after the 
game had started, gave Haverford a 
decided edge and stirred the happy 
gridders on to greater efforts. 

For the next ten minutes or so the 
teams battled on fairly even terms. 
Haverford was getting the better of 
the punting duel, favored by a stiff 
breeze, and was gradually forcing 
Washington back into its own terri- 
tory. A few plays and the ball rest- 
ed on the Washington 12-yard line. 
From here, Battey, who had tallied 
the initial marker, galloped around 
the same end for the second score. 

It was then that Washington real- 
ly began to play football. They held 
a decided advantage in the rest of the 
first period and with the exchange of 
goals began an offensive that ended 
only on the five yard line. Haverford 
held and punted to safety. But 
Washington came back again and this 
time a pretty toss from Robinson to 
Carozza ended in a touchdown and 
Plummer booted the extra point from 

There the score stood, 14 to 7, 
when the half ended and Washington 
was not so far behind that the brand 
of football it had been displaying in 
the second period wouldn't eventual- 
ly mean victory- 

But alas the Washington play in the 
third and fourth quarters was not up 
to the standard of the second and 
two more Haverford scores were 
pushed across to put the game away 
in cold storage. 

Registering six first downs to Hav- 
erford's five the locals held a slight 
advantage there. But Haverford, 
with several long gallops, made up 
and more for the extra first down. 

The Shoremen tried a total of 24 
passes and completed six for a fair 
percentage. Haverford tried only 
two. One was completed and the 
other intercepted by Al Geraitis, who 
galloped a long way down the field 
only to fumble when tackled.

Injuries cost Washington College's 
fighting football team a victory that, 
up to the last two minutes of actual 
playing, it had clearly earned in the 
game with Mt. St. Mary's last Satur- 
day. Ward and Carrozza, who had 
been playing the game of their lives, 
were both injured and forced to 
leave the game late in the second 
half. However the crowning misfor- 
tune for Washington as far as injur- 
ies were concerned came in the wan- 
ing minutes of the fourth quarter 
when Fritz Reinhold. great punter 
and mightiest of all mites, was forc- 
ed to depart for the locker room. This 
with a fifteen yard penalty was the 
break which the Mounts had been 
looking for and needed in order to 
put across their lone tally. 

To even the untrained observer of 
foot ball, it was evident that Ollie 
Robinson was the outstanding player 
on Kibler Field Saturday. Robin- 
son's quarterbacking was brilliant, 
daring and absolutely flawless. He 
edged back the Mountaineer's second- 
ary defense with an accurate pass- 
ing attack and then proceeded to slip 
off tackle for first downs. 

The work of Robinson and the en- 
tire Washington ball-carrying com- 
bination proved that, as usual, back- 
field coach Ekaitis knew just exactly 
what he was talking about when he 
promised the Maroon and Black an 
effective offense against teams any- 
where in our class, before the season 
was over. 

The playing of the Mt. St. Mary's 
line was far superior to the work of 
'he backfield. This was only too ev- 
ident un punts when the Mount for- 
wards repeatedly forced Fritz Rein- 
hold to hurry his kicks in order to get 
them off. Perfect interference more 
than great ball carrying was the 
secret to the Jesuit's score. It is in- 
teresting to note that, Hopkins, 
who scored the Mt. St. Mary's touch- 
down is from Waterbury, Conn., the 
home of quite a few Washington ath- 

Various parts of the 1931 Flying 
Pentagon are taking daily workouts 
in the gymnasium and from this dis- 
tance prospects look good for another 
stale championship quint. Some one 
remarked that Proudfoot had more 
ability as a basket ball player than 
he had confidence, which may be so. 
If "Del" develops confidence to equal 
his ability this season, he should be 
one of the most cock-sure cagers in 
the state. 

About the only thing accomplished 
by the tug-o-war was the beginning 
of a miniature "Long Count" contro- 
versy. The Freshmen are rejoicing 
over what they believe to be the first 
rat victory in the history of the event, 
while the Sophs are loudly proclaim- 
ing the affair to be a no-decision con- 
test. There is this to the claim of 
the Sophs: contrary to the opinion of 
most of the spectators, the Freshmen 
were the first to run in an extra man.

The traditional tug of wnr and mud 
fight between the Freshmen and Soph- 
omore classes wns held at Brook's 
Mill stream on October 19th. A 
great many spectators from Chester- 
town turned out to see this annual 
event, which proved successful. 

The sophomore lineup for the tug 
of war consisted of: Carey, Hull, 
Wagner, Dobkins, Giraitis, Clarke, | 
Benseman, Anthony, Cape!, Men-ill, 
Camber, Paris, Williams, Jones and 
Cohee. These husky men gave the 
Freshmen no little trouble, and theyi 
put all their physical effort into the 
thrilling contest. The Freshmen I 
team consisted of Ward, Blisard, 
Lord, De Mattia, Nicholson, MacKen- 
sie, Johns, Carozza, Sadler, Sayler, 
Stankiewiz, Huey, Mooney, Wright 
and Baker. These young Freshmen 
put up a hard fight, and because of 
their endurance the contest came to 
a tie. Both teams put all their effort 
into the tug and caused much satis- 
faction and pleasure among the spec- 

Following the tugof-war, the mud 
fight ensued. This was a grand free- 
for-all, in which mud played the main 
part. Among the first to charge were 
Fritz Rhinehold and Wes Sadler, who 
had a good tussle. They both put 
up a hard fight and showed excellent 
sportsmanship. Ralph Harries seem- 
ed to be the target of Freshmen re- 
venge, as he was contantly endanger- 
ed by several husky freshmen. "Red" 
Merrill and Elling Ward also had a 
keen combat. At the end of the ex- 
citing ten minutes it was difficult to 
decide which side was victor, as both 
teams displayed excellent fighting 
spirit and sportsmanship. To Harry 
Huey goes the distinction of being the 
only one injured in the fray as he 
sprained an ankle. 

All participants were thankful 
when Coach Kibler blew the whistle 
for retreat, for the mud abounded in 
enormous quantities, and soap seem- 
ed like heaven.

Washington College played a grent j 
game ngainst Mt. St. Mary's last Sat- 
urday. The Eastern Shore gridders, 
held n team rated three or four 
touchdowns better to a single score. 
This was made in the last minute and 
half of the game nfter everything had 
predicted a scoreless deadlock, and 
more than once, a victory for Wash- 
ington. This fine performance of 
our team was n duplicate of the Mary- 
land and Hopkins games. Saturday 
Washington came back in fine fashion 
after not playing so well against 
Swarthmore and Haverford. 

Robinson received the kick-off 
from Mt. St. Mnry's and ran the ball 
back to our thirty yard line by some 
clever running. On the first play, 
Robinson threw a long pass to Car- 
ozza, left end, which was completed. 
Corozza seemed to be away for a 
touchdown but was knocked out of 
bounds on Mt. St. Mary's twenty-five 
yard line. Several short gains were 
made through the line, but the ball 
was lost on downs. 

From then on throughout the first 
half the battle was virtually evenly 
fought. Twite the Maroon and 
Black flowed down to within the 
twenty-yard line only to lose the ball 
on downs and frustrate scoring possi- 
bilities. The few times that Wash- 
ington's territory was entered, Rhine- 
hold with his ever timely and clever 
punting, kept the locals out of dan- 

The second half was practically a 
repetition of the first, with most of 
the playing in the middle of the field. 
Washington College's aerial attack 
was lUncUonirig much better than in 
any game previously. On two occas- 
ions, Dick Gamber, who played a 
bang-up game despite a weak ankle, 
aided in making long gains by catch- 
ing passes which Mt. St. Mary's backs 
handled but failed to intercept. When 
the game had but ninety seconds to 
go, Washington received punt and ran 
it back to our twenty yard line, Gir- 

aitis, kicking for Rhinehold, who was 
taken out of the game with an injur- 
ed ankle and side, attempted to kick 
out of danger. Unfortunntely the 
ball struck Nicholson and bounded 
straight up iti the air. Only fifteen 
yimfs were gained and these were 
nullified by n fifteen yards penalty. 
Mt. St. Mary's possessed the ball on 
our twenty yard line, and on the 
first play Hopkins ran around left end 
for a touchdown. The extra point 
wns added by Lynch. 

Right after this, the time-keeper's 
whistle signified the end of the game 
and also the loss of the game for 
Washington who deserved no lesa 
thnn a scoreless tie. 

The weight ndvantage of Mt, St. 
Mary's line and the fierceness of the 
game caused a number of injuries to 
Washington's light team. Ward, re- 
placed by Lord, left the game during 
tho second hnlf with a badly sprained 
ankle. Carozza received a broken 
nose nnd a wrenched knee in the 
same period and was replaced by 
Plummer. Baker substituted for 
Rhinehold when he was injured.

kind of degeneration that caused the

set in again. The motly crew which 
assembles in the library in the even- 
ings at present is composed mostly 
of "dates" and "bull sessions." This 
may coun' 1 . like exaggeration but I 
recall very vividly an evening of last 
week when there were fifty-six peo- 
ple present. I took particular care 
to note that of the entire crowd only 
three were there for reading or 
studying to all intents and purposes. 
To make it a real social club we only 
need a few ping-pong tables and sev-

of the Blacks, and Elizabeth Brice, 
of the Maroons. Splendid pass work

There were marvelous attacks by the 
Maroons, the ball being kept in the 
Black's territory most of the time, al- 
though both sides fought desperate-

SATURDAY, NOV. 14, 1931 





The program of improvement and 
expansion, first noticeable several 
years ago upon the remodeling of 
Reid Hall, the building of the new 
grandstand and the changing of the 
athletic field to its present state of 
improvement, has continued here at 
Washington College despite the gen- 
eral economic depression. 

During the past summer the col- 
lege authorities found it possible to 
have a social or lounging room built 
in the basement of Middle Hall. This 
was furnished with reading tables, 
card tables, locker benches and a 
radio for the benefit of the non-fra- 
ternity men on the campus. It is 
expected that next summer will see 
a room of the same nature construct- 
ed in the basement of West Hall for 
the Freshmen. 

Recently, experts from the Tow- 
son Nursery were busy landscaping 
the grounds around William Smith 
Hall. Among the shrubbery planted 
are Japanese yews, flowering shrubs, 
hawthorns and maples. Around the 
front of the Hall a planting of Eng- 
lish ivy was made. This in time will 
cover it, producing the Colonial ef- 
fect which is so much sought after. 
This planting is a start toward pro- 
ducing there a planting similar to 
that around Reid Hall. 

The most recent note of progress 
is being done in athletic lines. A 
new athletic field is being cleared and 
graded just south of the present one. 
The new grounds comprise property 
which has been bought by the college 
within the last year and a half. The: 
purpose of this project is to give 
greater opportunities for intra-mural 

On the new field there will be a 
girl's hockey field, a regulation base- 
hall diamond for inter-collegiate 
games, if we return to baseball and i 
:". golf course around the edges of- 
both fields. 

Two new tennis courts and an ar- 
chery lane will be laid out adjacent 
to the present tennis courts behind 
'. le men's dormitories. 

Former College Student 
Wins National Prize 

Mr. Kenneth Douty, of the class of 
'31, has been named the winner of 
the national prize offered by The 
W. C. T. U. Organization for 
the best paper on Ways To Further 
National Sobriety. The prize was a 
check to the amount of fifty dollars. 

Mr. Douty, who was the editor of 
THE 1931 PEGASUS, is now teach- 
ing in Baltimore. 


Simpers - Chapman 
Nuptials Held 

The wedding of two former Wash- 
ington College students, Miss Louise 
D. Simpers, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 
Frank V. Simpers, and Mr. James W. 
Chapman III, son of Mr. and Mrs. ■ 
William Walter Chapman, was held 
last Saturday evening at 5 o'clock, in 
the Methodist Episcopal Church. It 
was one of the most interesting 
events, for both Chestertown and the 
college, that has been held here for 
the past year or so. 

The ceremony was performed by 
the Rev. Harry J. Wright, pastor of 
that church. The bride was given 
in marriage by her father. 

Miss Theodosia Chapman, sister of 
the groom attended her as maid of 
honor, and Mr. William Walter Chap- 
man, Jr., was his brother's best man. 
The brides maids were Miss Eleanor 
Titsworth, Miss Margaret Jefferson, 
Miss Geraldine Harwood and Miss 
Dorothy Vickers. The ushers, Mr. 
Harry N. Wilson, Mr. Edwin S. Val- 
liant, Mr. /Vannort Chapman, and 
Mr. Thomas Bonwill. 

The bride wore a white satin gown 
with a tulle veil fastened with orange 
blossoms, and carried white roses. 
The maid of honor was attired in a 
green velvet dress of Empress Eu- 
genie lines, while the bridesmaids 
wore dark Spanish Tile velvet dresses 
with hats of matching color, and car- 
ried bouquets of yellow chrysanthe- 

Following the ceremony, a recep- 
tion was held at the home of Mr. and 
Mrs. Simpers which was attended by 
nearly two hundred guests.

Archery Has Many 
New Members Oat 

Last Wednesday eve about the 
hour of eleven -thirty a voluntary and 
active fire department was organiz- 
ed by the Freshmen boys. 

Johnny Standi witz was elected 
"chief" and they hitched Sykes up 
for the horse. There were several 
other officers among whom were 
Gardner, the hose man, and Duffy, 
assistant chief. After the elections 
were through there came a violent 
ringing of bells and racing around. 
During the excitement the panels of 
three doors on the first floor were 
kicked out and one or two windows 
broken. This caused much detective 
work on the part of the Student 
Council and faculty. As yet the 
guilty ones have not been found and 
it is not definitely known whether the 
fire drill had any connection with the 
destruction of the property. 

! The Thnrsdny Assembly Oct. 1 
1931, wns addressed by Mrs. II. Mil 
gnrot Whitecomb, Maryland field 
worker of the American National 
I Red Cross, in a delightful and inler- 
I esting manner on the nnture of the 
I Red Cross Work. 

Mrs. Whitcomb briefly summariz- 
ed the organization of the Red Cr 
in Europe. She then told how Clara 
Barton conceived the idea in thll 
country during the Civil War and o] 
! the valuable work done by her and 
] her assistance to relieve the suffer 
jinj of the soldiers. After the Civil 
Wai Miss Barton appealed to variou 
presidents and secretaries to make 
the Rea Cross u national organ i/n 
tion. Hei appeals were finally heard 
by Secretary* Blaine. 

The first Chapter of the American 
Red Cross was organized with fifteen 
members in Donvillc, N. Y. fifty 
years ago. At a recent celebration 
in Douville 50,001) members were in 
attendance. At the present time 
there are more than 4,000,000 mem- 
bers and 3600 Chapters in tho United 

Mr*' Whitenmb, in concluding, ex- 
pressed tho hope that (he student* of 
Washington College would join the 
Red Cross during its annua] member- 
ship drive this fall. 


Srinsfield And Coulbourn 

The regular meeting of the Mt. 
Vernon Literary Society was held 
Wednesday, Nov. 11th. After a 
shor; business meeting, a mock trial 
was held. 

The court scene opened with the 
clerks calling for the Beal vs. Bran- 
ford Case in which Miss Beal entered 
ruit against Mr. Bran ford for breech 
of promise. The counsel for the de- 
fense, Mr. Brinsfiold and the prose- 
cuting attorney, Mr. Coulbourn, ex- 
amined the following witnesses: 
Mary Jane Beal (Alice Dole); Fran- 
ces Beal (Gladys Councill) ; Walter 
Branford, Joe McGinty (Cary.) 

Archery has not yet been dis- 
couraged by cold weather. A good 
crowd has been practicing regular- 
ly, among whom have been several 
members of the faculty. Dr. Car- 
penter, Prof. Makosky, Miss Snod- 
gress, and Mr. Goodman, one of 
the best and most enthusiastic arch- 
er,;. Mildred Tryzno still leads the 
scoring, with a total of 68, out of 24 
arrow rounds. 


On Thursday, Oct. 5th, 1931, Mrs. 
Donold Hooker, nationally known as 
a pioneer wo mens' suffrage worker 
and editor of "Equal Rights" a mon- 
thly magazine published at Washing- 
ton, D. C, delivered an emphatic and 
interesting address to the student 
body on tho subject of "Equal Rights 
for Women." 

Mrs. Hooker traced the steps in 
the emancipation of women during 
the latter part of the 19th and early 
part of the 20th century. She point- 
ed out that women had proven them- 
selves to be as intelligent as men and 
as capable in any field of industry. 

The address was concluded by a 
statement that women should have 
equal citizenship rights, equal wage- 
scales and should be included in the 
fourteenth ammendment.

Coach Kiblcr has experienced 
some exceptionally tough breaks this 
year, his regulars becoming crippled 
in almost every game. In spite of 
such circumstances those who were 
able to ploy displayed a willingness 
to fight, which would have touched 
the heart of any coach. The Wash- 
ington College football teum de- 
serves a grout deal of credit for the 
manner in which they played the lust 
few games because of the odds which 
were against them.

and popular student will be unable

berths. Jones has developed into a 
very fine tackle this year. The 
guard positions will be taken care of 
by Dickerson and Nicholson. John- 
nie Lord will play center. 

In the backlield Dobkins will call 
signals, Plummer and Rhinehold will 
be at the wings and Giraitis will be

if there is an insufficiency of 
milk for it. This is the case, this 
year. Last year, milk was amply 
provided for our cereal. This year 
students must be content to pour ov- 
er their food, about a gill of milk, or 
let the cereal go dry. Now if milk 
were very expensive, or if there were 
but few cows about Chestertown, 
there might be some cause for the 
cut-down. However, I do not think 
any of these are apparent, so I will 
again call upon the clear thinking of 
Mr. Robinson to furnish us with a 
solution to this problem. I hope that 
I there may be actually something done 
i this time, rather than an explana- 
tion, with no imminent solution.

This column is not written for the 
purpose* of presenting uplifting lit-

to aid the paper; but it is written to 
fill space. It is not the best mater-

of depression you take what you can 
get. The subject of the column will 
be what the author can pick up here 
and there around the campus which 
he thinks the other students would 
like to know. This column has no 
object nor does it adhere to the rules 
of coherence and unity. But if you 
have read this far you have wasted 
just as much time as the author.

Columbia Gets Grid-Graph 

It seems as though the principal 
idea of going to college is to bring 
home a diploma. With this thought 
in mind it is interesting to note that 
some people's conception of the word 
diploma is what they bring home af-

A large "Grid-graph" was install- 
ed in the Columbia University gym 
for a play-byplay description of the 
Columbia-Cornell game. A system of 
lights indicated all plays as they took 
place at the game at Ithaca, N. Y. 
Football spirit was brought out by 
cheer leaders and a section of the 
band, which played in the gym dur- 
ing the half.

Two of the male students of last

a way in which they may get a "seal." 

During one of the noon day meals 
of the past week we noticed a fresh- 
man jump in line ahead of his turn 
to get his second order of liver for 
which he was called down by the 
dietician. We surely do hope that he 
didn't want his liver out of order. 

Now turning to material of more 
literary value we would like to recom-

Since we are trying to keep up

The collego catologue says this

We have heard much criticism 
against the cafeteria and we wish to 
present three points in its defense 

1. Times are bad. Salaries are 
worse this year than they were last 
year, in fact, everything is wo 
Therefore the meals have a right to 
be worse. 

2. "An army," someone said, 
"travels on its stomach." And we 
are not doing any traveling therefore 
we don't, need good meals. 

3. Consistency is the secret of 
success. No one can say that the 
meals have not been consistent. 

It seems as though the last week 
has closed a chapter in many boys' 1 

One of the important figures in | 
this year's edition of the yearbook, 
quoted himself: "We want everybody 
satisfied." We wonder if he wants 
us satisfied with his system? 

We understand Mrs. Hooker to say 
"Michigan heat Princeton because 
Michigan was co-ed." We would 
like to have her explain why Haver-

not give them a chance? We have 
everything to gain.

SATURDAY, NOV. 14, 1931 





Since the placing of the signs on 
the lower part of the campus by the | 
Student Council several results are, 
particularly noticeable. It is quite 
remarkable to note that students who 
feel the necessity of saving a few 
steps walk on the parts of the cam-' 
pus that are not marred by paths. It 
is equally remarkable that some mem- 
bers of the faculty invariably walk 
iii the exact paths that have been trod 
for generations. Is it fitting and 
proper that these people, whose help 
and guidance we need in the process 
of education, should set an example 
that is a flagrant violation of the rules 
of the Student Council? The argu- 
ment might be presented that the Stu- 
dent Government Association has 
control of students only, but it ap- 
pears that this means was used after 
the President of the college had made 
numerous fruitless requests to at- 
tain the same end. 

In addition to the markers already 
placed it may be of some aid to place 
several north of the main walk from 
William Smith Hail to Washington 
Avenue. There is a path rapidly be- 
ing brought into existence in the 
straight line from the steps at the 
front of Middle Hall to the steps be- 
fore William Smith Hall. 

Several horribly cast iron aristo- 
cracies are evolving among the stu- 
dent body. In the past several years 
there has been a tendency for the 
student body to divide itself into 
groups which are organized in such 
a fashion that the members are ex- 
tremely loyal to their own crowd. 
Firs'; we had fraternities, then soror- 
ities, and now we have the Middle 
Hall Club. Everyone is part of some 
organization but freshmen and they 
will soon be required to affiliate with 
one or another of these groups. This 
matter of organization is all very 
well, as long as it tends toward fur- 
ther improvement of the entire group. 
However ther'e is a decided lack of 
cooperation between these small so- 
cieties. If a genuine sportsmanlike 
competition were promoted nothing 
further could be asked, hut there is 
a malicious antagonism that forces 
the chasms between them to become 
wider and wider. It is more neces- 
sary to achieve social cooperation in 
a small student body than in a large 
one and we can never become as "one 
big, happy family" if we insist on 
widening the small, but ever-exist- 
ent, breach between all of us.

Delegates To Conference 

The Y. M. C. A. feela quite elated 
in sending three delegates to the re- 
cent Tri-State Conference held at 
Hood College." The reports of 
Messrs. Branford, Bailey and Sadler 
brought to the local group impres-

opened avenues of thought toward 
higher achievement in not only the 
work of the Y. M. C. A. on the cam-

individual members. 

This conference had for its pur- 
pose the beginning of some spiritual 
pioneering. It showed that new 
trails are awaiting a blazer; trails 
that are different from those in the

VOL. XXXI. NO. 5. 

SATURDAY, NOV. 28. 1931 




The Sophomore griclmen, led by 
Hall and Hodgson, marched through 
a plucky Freshman eleven to roll up 
18 points against the Frosh 0. 

The game was well played and was j 
made spectacular and exciting by 
long runs by both sides. 

It was not until late in the second 
quarter that the Sophomores, en- 
couraged by the long gains of the 
brilliant, running back, Hall, and the 
line-bucks of Proudfoot, pushed the 
first touchdown across the line. Hall's i 
placement kick for extra point fail-! 
ed. The Sophs second score came 
early in the third period, when a 60' 
yard sprint by Joe Hall put the ball 
on the Frosh ten-yard line. Thence 
two line-bucks and an off tackle play 
scored the second touchdown. Try for. 
point again failed. 

An end run, well executed by the 
diminutive Hodgson, scored the third 
and last touchdown of the game. 

The Sophomores, due to the hard 
work of Coach Frank Badart, pre- 
sented a fast, hard-playing, well-drill- 
ed team. 

On the other hand, the Freshmen, 
although out-weighed and handicap- 
ped by lack of experience, put up a| 
line, wellfought game. Much credit, 
ir. due coaches Dickerson and Usilton 
for their consistent preparation. 

The outstanding players of the, 
game were: Joe Hall, whose brilliant 
play was a credit to any team; All 
Hodgson, whose quarter-backing aid- 1 
cd greatly in the Sophs victory; Joel 
Mooney, whose punting and ball-car- [ 
lying were very conspicious; Wes| 
Sadler, who proved himself to be a, 
valuable quarter-back ; Mike Wil- 1 
liams, who was a pillar of strength] 
in the line-up and Doc Murray, who j 
left little to be desired.

the music. 

The decorations were superb. The 
color scheme was red, white and, 
green. Large strips of these colors! 
were used as a background for the 
orchestra platform. Multituduious 1 
paper strips were fastened on hoops) 
so as to represent a three top circus

red, serving as a background, and 
green Christmas trees as a back- 
ground. A large cedar tree decor- 
ated with small electric lights and 
packages from Santa himself, oceu-,

Dean And Alumni 
Give Victors Cup 

A handsome silver loving cup has 
been presented as a perpetual trophy 
for the winner of the Freshman- 
Sophomore football game, by Dean 
Jones and the Alumni Association. 

The cup is to be in the possession 
of the president of the winning 
class for the year following the 
game in which that class was victor- 
ious. The name of the winning class 
ir. to be engraved, with the date, each 
year upon the cup. 

The prize is to be presented, with 
suitable ceremony, immediately after 
the annual game. 

The Freshman-Sophomore football | 
game has so long been a feature of 
the autumnal activities that it has' 
become a tradition of the College.! 
Each year after the last varsity game! 
of the season, the first and second 
year men engage in a struggle for 
which they consistently train for sev- 
eral weeks. Until this year the win- 
ner has made its success known 
throughout the town in a manner 
painfully conspicious. Poster-fights 
and other activities have marked a 
period in which the honorable repu- 
tation of the college was not elevat- 
ed. By the action of the Dean, and 
other executive bodies, the unfortun- 
ate game aftermath has been elimin- 

Social functions were suggested to 
"rtliven the holidays without resort- 
ing to force. And most important 
of all, the cup changed the winning 
of the game to being an achievement 
really worth-while rather than a sig- 
nal for the destruction of property. 

It seems obvious that the whole 
college owes a vote of thanks to Dean 
Jones for his thought of the cup, to 
the Alumni Association for its part, 
to Dr. Titsworth for his contributions, 
and to the Student Council for its 
whole-hearted support.

Mediocrity Theme 
Of Dr. Holloway 

Tho weekly assembly at Washing- 
ton College had as the speaker on 
Thursday, December 8, Dr. H. B. 
Holloway. State Superintendent of 
Schools for the Slate of Delaware. 
Dr. Holloway 's Subject was the 
"Triumph of Mediocrity." 

Dr. Holloway graduated from 
Washington College with the class of 

Approaching the subject of his 
talk, Dr. Holloway explained the cor- 
rect, interpretation of his title. It 
was not to be supposed, he noted, 
that mediocrity was preferable to ex- 
cellency, but rather that it was nec- 
cessary for the expression of excel- 
lency. He reminded the audience 
that graduation from college was the 
beginning of learning and that even 
college students could not all be in* 
trusted with genius. 

Hi, observed that the poet was at 
a loss ii> circulate his wares without 
the aid oi the common printer and 
paper-merchant. In other words. 
Genius needs -\ practical helper, 
which it finds in *"« common man. 

The first contribution, or triumph 
of mediocrity is, then, cooperation. 

"All life is made of time," stated 
Dr. Holloway. He further noted 
that time is a commodity an equal 
amount of which is possessed by ev- 
eryone, regardless of his station. The 
average person by untiring and per- 
sistent effort can use the time allot- 
ted to him just as efficiently as the 
genius-born. He can accomplish 
just as much for the good of man- 
kind as the man intellectually his 
superior, noted Dr. Holloway. 

Specifications for manhood as sug- 
gested by Kipling closed a talk rich- 
ly illustrated by vivid experiences 
from life. 

Freshmen Meet 
To Discuss Plans

On Thursday, Nov. 19, the Fresh 
man meeting was called to order by 
President Huey. 

The subject of the loving cup, pre- 
sented to the winning class in the 
Sophomore-Freshman football game, 
was profferred and explained by the 

Plans were discussed for the dance 
to be held on the evening after the 
football game. The dance was spon- 
sored by President Titsworth, and he 
very kindly furnished the orchestra. 
It was decided that a fee of twenty- 
five cents per person was to be paid 
by the losing side. The Faculty, 
Seniors, Juniors and the members of 
the victorious class were to be ad- 
mitted free of charge, it was decid- 

A dance committee was chosen and 
found to be composed of: John Lord, 
chairman; Scott Beck, Wesley Sad- 
ler. Wilma Dahn and Ann Peck. 

Plans for a soccer game (which 
did not materialize) on Thanksgiv- 
ing, as well as those for a girls hock- 
ey game were discussed before the 
meeting was adjourned. 

On Thursday, November HI, the 
Assembly was fortunate in having Cor 
its speaker, the Hon, T, A Inn Golds- 
borough, representative from the 
I- ir il Congressional District of Mary- 
land, who gave an exceedingly inter- 
esting discourse, choosing as his topic 
'■ I h. Present Economic Crisis." 

Congressman Goldsborough, who 
graduated from Washington College 
magna cum lavdo opened his talk 
with several choice anecdotes <>( the 

days when he was a student here. On 
continuing his talk, he defined this 
Economic Crisis as being essentially 
a problem r>r distribution rather than 
over-production, as has been the pop- 
ular belief. He declared that power- 
ful influences were to blame for this 
condition; influences whose activities 
will have to be controlled. This, he 
pointed uiii. is a problem for the 
coming generation; a matter in which 
the mass — rather than the individual 
— mind must be educated. 

Mr. Goldsborough also presented 
an interesting sidelight on the recent 
activities of the Committee for the 
invcHtigatinn of Communism, and 
gave his own viewn on the subject.

Thanksgiving Day 
Is Jolly Occasion 

The Thanksgiving holidays were 
pleasantly spent by those who re- 
mained at school. Everything pos- 
sible was done to help the "Extra- 
territorial" residents have a good 

After the great football game on 
Wednesday, a number of girls from 
Reid Hall came over to the "gym" to 
dance with the Freshmen boys. The 
boys (and girls) enjoyed this occas- 
sion exceedingly. 

The orchestra, which was furnish- 
ed by Dr. Titsworth. performed in a 
manner quite in keeping with the 
Thanksgiving spirit. 

The lights in the gymnasium were 
shaded by green and red paper, 
which rather gave the room a "back- 
woods" effect. However, this effect 
was not complete, as there were no 
turkeys gobbling around. There 
were some Sophomores standing on 
the sidelines talking, though. 

The success of the night was in- 
sured when a few Freshmen began 
to serve refreshments. 

On Thursday morning the dance 
was continued with a change of 
habitat, at ten o'clock. The ELM 
correspondent notes that "It surely 
was fun to begin Thanksgiving by 
dancing with a pretty girl. 

He continues with, "For Thanks- 
giving supper we had roast turkey. It 
was really good to surround a meal 
like that one. We indeed owe Miss 
Pontz a vote of thanks. 

Yes, the Thanksgiving holidays 
passed pleasantly for those who re- 
mained at school.

SATURDAY, NOV. 28, 1931 


No organ of a creature with u complicated nerve system is 
more desirable for life than the eye. Physically, or rather 
mechanically, we may term the eye an outstanding structure 
which assimilates and conveys a message in light to our brain. 
The relations of the eye may be divided into three classifica- 
tions; first, the images "seen" by the eye; second, the eye it- 
self; and third, the brain which is to translate the image. 

Of the three divisions mentioned above, it is probable that 
'\:c !..n'.'. one i. : . most controlled by man. It is just as probable 
that it controls man, not only in its tangible concreteness, but 
in the undelinable abstractness of sight. A man's whole nature 
may be altered by his cumulative visual impressions. From an 
ordinary collection of sight records may stand out ones of ex- 
traordinary blackness, or bleakness, as ones of a vague nature. 
And thus the man upon whom those records are recorded may 
be domineered by them and himself become dark or drab in 

We say that the objects which we see produce the above 
effects, but rather is it not the translation, the interpretation, of 
our brains that cause us to adopt the attitudes that we do 
adopt? John Milton was blinded at an early age, and thus 
was left to see life as his active brain alone would see it. The 
verbal pictures he produced surpass by far those a usual man 
oi keenest vision could conjure. 

We often wonder if the Romans, at the height of their 
empire, looked on their surroundings with a brazen blase eye. 
We wonder if they said that there was little new to come, that 
it was all there. The great thinkers of today must regard with 
a leeling of pity and alarm the growing ranks of the sophis- 
ticated. Encased by the aura of the paltry inventions of our 
day. man, or many men, has come to look, when he looks at all, 
with a feeling of tolerant condescension upon what he terms his 
"ordinary" surroundings. His powers of observation, of sight, 
foi what contains the truly beautiful are declining. If they not, why does a man lean against a tree and declare that he 
ir bored? He is in physical contact with an object which, by 
careful examination with the eyes, will yield an immense store 
o. information. He is bored because his powers of perspection 
are null. 

We recently noted an instance of a number of people 
"physically" seeing a magnificent bird winging its way over- 
head. By the comments of the crowd it was easy to see that 
man's age-old hunting instinct immediately cropped up, but not 
ten per cent of the people present "mentally" saw the wonder 
of that sight. They did not observe the efficient structure of 
the bird, the precision with which it moved, the singleness sf 
purpose which governed it, nor a multitude of other things, 

Is it not excusable, if not desirable, then, to suggest that we 
cultivate power of sight? Will we not lead richer, more pur- 
poseful lives if we learn to note carefully our surroundings? 
'i he college student is at a period in life when he may most 
easily acquire a deep insight. Perhaps he will. 

According In an extract from the 
NEW YORK TIMES the following 
may be said of our Secretary of 
State: "An intensive pictorial study 
of Mr. Stimson's career beginning 
with the Naval Conference and run- 
ning through the Laval visit to the 
Grandi visit clearly shows the Secre- 
tary of Stale's coat collar riding up 
in the back in a manner that reflects 
little credit on his tailor." 

It is interesting to note the trend 
away from the semi-vocational col- 
lege which was so enthusiastically 
sponsored a few years ago. The ed- 
ucators discovered what we have al- 
ways known, namely, that a student 
can find work without paying to have 
it given to him. 

i no true test of our legislators will 
probably occur in a few weeks when 
Congress has "warmed up" and be- 
gun to function properly. If anoth-

It is interesting to speculate upon 
the history of the bulletin board. The j

the advent of the first Egyptian dy- ■

In our college the posting-board is an 
essential component of the institu- 
ion. With a feeling of regret, and 
perhaps a little cynicism, we note the 
constant defilement of posted notices. 
We have observed notices that would 
do justice to the mind of an eight- 
year old and which were obviously 
no . intended to convey a message. 

While we cannot say that a college 
is judged by its bulletin board, it is 
irablo to respect its use.

In a recent article appearing in the 
ELM the writer, it seems, apparently 
was rather caustic in his remarks 
with reference to certain conditions 
in the College Commons. Unfor- 
tunately, these remarks appeared to 
bo directed toward Mr. Robinson, 
student manager. It was not the 
idea of the writer in expressing his 
:',entiments to place the blame for the 
incident upon the shoulders of Mr. 
Robinson. In a recent edition of the 
ELM Mr. Robinson acted as spokes- 
man for the cafeteria, and it was only 
in answering that the writer's re- 
marks were addressed to him. It is 
che desire for the readers of this col- 
umn to know that these remarks were 
of an impersonal nature. We all 
seem to feel as though "Ollie" has

difficulty, to benefit the student

By Jorman, Pub. 1930 

"Le diable noir!" Thus was Alex- 
ander Dumas, pere, styled by his 
jealous contemporaries. And good 
reason, too, did they have to be 
jealous, for this young upstart of 
negro blood was beginning to usurp 
their supremacy of the French liter- 
ary world. 

Alexander Dumas was born in a 
French village in 1802. His father 
had been a general in Napolean's 
African conquests, but later, incur- 
ring the disfavor of the emperor, he 
was allowed to die penniless with a 
broken heart, bequeathing nothing to 
hi ; young son except the noble title 
of "Marquis," which meant very Ut- 
ile indeed. The earliest years of 
Dumas's life were flashes seen 
through the gray mists of oblivion. 
He was of that troubled generation 
born under the supremacy of Napol- 
eon and his mind soon became a re- 
ceptable for conflicting urges, that 
the glory and the splendor of the old 
world aroused. 

Utterly penniless the young Alex- 
andre sought his fortunes in Paris, 
where he began apprenticeship as a 
clerk. However, not for long was he 
to be hidden in a musty office. Dumas 
decided upon the career of play- 
ight. For ten years he devoted him- 


Of late we have noticed an ever- 
ircreasing tendency on the part of 
he student body toward breaking in- 
to line at the cafeteria. Although' 
his is not apparently covered by any 
written rule at Washington College, 
those who do so make themselves 
rather conspicuous by their lack of 
ci uriesy. Akhough it is admittedly 
pleasant to be able to take one's own 
ime in reaching the cafeteria and 
still be among the first to enter, 
there should be a certain amount of 
common politeness in all of us which 
should prevent us from doing this.

teen or twenty minutes while others 
are walking in ahead. So let's all

The Mysteries Of 
A Pack Of Cards 

A private soldier by the name of 
Bourke Chambers was taken before. 
a magistrate for playing cards during 
the divine service. It appeared that; 
a sergeant commanded the soldiers at 
the church. When the parson had 
read the prayers he took the text, j 
Those who had a Bible took it out,: 
but this soldier had neither Bible nor: 
common prayer book, but pulling out 
a pack of cards, he spread them be- ! 
fore him. He just looked at one card j 
and then at another. The sergeant 
of the company saw him and said, I 
"Bourke, put up the cards, this is noj 
place for them." 

"Never mind that," replied Bourke. 

When the service was over, the con- 
stable took Bourke before the May- 

"Well," said the mayor, "What 
have you brought the soldier here 

"For playing cards in church." 

"Well soldier what have you to say 
for yourself?" 

"Much, sir, I hope." 

"Very good. If not I will punish 
you move than man was ever punish- 

"I have been about six weeks on 
the march. I have neither Bible nor 
common prayer book. I have nothing 
but a pack of cards, and I'll satisfy 
your worship of my intentions," said 
the soldier. And spreading the cards 
before the mayor he began with the 
ace. "When I see the ace, it reminds 
me there is but one God. When I

see the deuce, it reminds me of the 
Father, and Son. The trey spot re- 
minds me of the Father, Son and Holy 
Ghost. The four spot reminds me of 
the four Evangelists that preached; 
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. 
When I meet the five, it reminds me 
of the five wise virgins that trimmed 
their lamps; there were ten, but five 
were foolish and were put out. When 
I see the six, it reminds me that in 
six days the Lord made Heaven and 
earth. When I see the seven, it re- 
minds me that on the seventh day he 
rested from the great work he had 
created, and hollowed it. I look at 
the eight, and it reminds me of the 
eight righteous persons that were 
saved when God destroyed the world, 
Noah and his wife and three sons and

their wives. When I see the nine, 
it reminds me of the lepers that were 
cleansed by our Savior; there were 
nine out of ten who never returned 
thanks. When I see the ten, it re- 
minds me of the ten commandments 
which God handed down to Moses on 
the tablets of stone. When I see the 
King, it reminds me of the King of 
Heaven, who is God Almighty. When 
I see the Queen, it reminds me of the 
Queen of Sheba, who visited Solo- 
mon, for she was as wise a woman 
as he was a man. She brought with

her fifty boys ami girls, all dressed 
us boys for King Solomon to tell 
which were girls. King Solomon 
sent for water for them to wash, the 
girls washed to the elbows and the 
boys to the wrist, so King Solomon 
told by that token, 

"When I count the number of 
cards in a pack. I find fifty-two, the 
number of weeks in a year. I find 
three hundred and sixty-five spots in 


a pack, as many days as in a year. I 
find four suits, the number of weeks 
in a month. I find there are twelve 
picture cards in a pack, representing 
the number of months in a year. I 
count thirteen tricks, same as thir- 
teen weeks in a quarter of a year." 
"So you see, a pack of cards serves 
for a Bible, almanac and common 
prayer book."

"They're not bo hot" was a cry

of combat like those their Anglo-Sax-

to persuade a gentleman digging on 
the new athletic field tn lend them bis

color in the stands was livened by 
the increasing number of purple faces 
and blue noses. Anxiety blanketed 
the Fl-eshmen'S features as they saw 
their doughty fellows go down in his- 
torical defeat. 

A tardily migrating Whistling 
Swan procured the only birds-eye 
view of the scene. No doubt his re- 
gard for the huddling mortals below 
him was not a high one. And as 
that fowl descended at eventide into 
some quiet pond, thus did the Fresh- 
men hopes for victory drop. 

NOW that the football season is ov- 
er, and hasketbnll ih being practiced 
in earnest, it is well to turn our at- 
tention to this latter spurt and sec 
just what our prospects are for the 
coming season. 

Last season was very successful, 
the Flying Pentagon having triumph- 
ed over some of the best teams in the 
East. Among the chief victories 
were: Washington 30, Princeton 28; 
Washington 88, Maryland 32; and 
Washington 84, Loyola 28. 

Although we lost last year one of 
Washington's most able players, Pnt 
Gainer, we should have even a more 
successful season this year. First 
string material nvailable this yenr 
consists mainly of the following: 
Captoin Robinson, Del Proudfoot, 
Dirk Johnson, Al Giriatis, Ed Fitz- 
gerald, Camber, Raisin, Hodgson and 
Dobkins; nil of whom are showing up 
well in practice. Among the incom- 
ing "white hopes" are: Frank Caroz- 
za, Harry Huey, and Ellery Ward, 
all of whom have played on first class 

high school loams. 

Remembering, apparently, the 
trouncing received at the hands of 
the Flying Pentagin last year, Prinee- 
ton does not appear on the schedule 
this yenr. Perhaps in years to come, 
ruch univei-sities will be seeking 
games with Washington College.

Thanksgiving Day Contests Postponed 
By Nonappearance of Enough Players 

The soccer game between the 
Freshmen and Junior boys, proposed 
to have been held on Thanksgiving 
day did not occur because of lack of 
playing material. The game would 
have proved to be an interesting one, 
for many of the Freshmen were 
players on first class high school 
earns, among them the championship 
'earn of the State of Maryland. I 

The girl's hockey game, which was 
vuggostcd to parallel the boys soccer 

tilt, was also "given the gate" at the 
last moment, when insufficient aspir- 
ants for the teams arrived. Miss 
Doris Bell was to have supervised 
this contest. 

Probably no sport on the campus 
in recent years has excited more in- 
terest among the female contingent 
than archery. There seems to be a 
fascination to the hollow-twang of 
the "stout, yew" bows, and the thdd 
of arrows biting into reed targets.

Brings Change 

A marked change is noticeable, or 
rather, will be noticeable among the 
hideoi- -ai-large of Washington Col- 
lege. The "students-at-large" re- 
fers however, only to football men. 
Tin impression one would gain upon 
reviewing the student body of the 
college at the end of November 
would be that a number of likely 
looking young men bad been worsted 
in physical combat. Since the close

The brnve warriors of Old Wash- 
ington, still lighting hard, once more 
have gone down to defeat. This! 
time they were taken across by the 
mighty Susquebunnaians. 

As usual, the team was out-weigh- 
ed, a condition which frequently de- 
cides the fate of a game of football. , 

The score of 20 to readily indi- 
cates that the WasMngtoniane were 1 
far from inactive in the next to last 
game of the season. Their consis-

oppose a team more gifted with| 
avoirdupois and to give said team a 
run for its money.

A sudden hush fell upon the crowd. 
The orchestra stopped playing and 
even the usual medley of laughing 
and chatting died away. President 
Huey, the pride of the FRESHMEN, 
advanced up the floor, greeted by an 
avalanche of applause. In his hands 
Huey carried a silver loving-cup, the 
trophy that his classmen had battled 
for and lost in the football game that 
afternoon. It was the FRESHMAN- 
Sophomore cup, a thing of beauty and 
probably a joy forever. 

Huey addressed a few words to the 
audience, and with true FRESHMAN 
sportsmanship congratulated the 
Sophomores on their victory. Gamber 
stepped forth to receive the cup for 
the Sophomores, and just another 
case, of "to the victor goes the spoils" i 
was observed. 

It was a sad, sad moment for thei 
FRESHMEN to see this cup literally ; 
taken out of their hands. However 
great their chagrin, they roused a 
lusty cheer for the Sophs. (It may 
be said that there was a conspicuous 
absence of that species of cheer com- 
monly called the "Bronx.") 

In moments like this the caste dis- 
tinction of being a Sophomore or a 
FRESHMAN is almost lost. The 
hereditary differences are temporar- 
ily forgotten. It is something nigh! 
to the "twain" meeting, except that 
thh case deals with not the East and 
the West, but the West and the 

Would that that silver cup could

vintage- nnd that these two classes 
might have pledged their love for

All too soon are these occasions. 
forgotten, and the Sophomores are 
again providing occupation for the: 
Vigilance Committee. 

Having started the season in a win- 
ning spirit, the football team decid- 
ed to win either one way or another. 
Since they lost the first game it was 
unanimously decided by all to cast 
their vote for the negative. This. 
idea originated from the fact that no 
other team in the country could then 
compare with our own, which would 
have two perfect seasons at this one's 
close. In other words we have lost. 
all but one game, which was a tie, ] 
in the last two years. 

Quite a few times during the past] 
season many of our beautiful rooters; 
were afraid we might forget oursel- 
ves and defeat our rivals. In ani 
emergency of this sort the water boy 
would be sent in to quiet us down. In' 
'sotto' voice he would say, "Fumble, 
forget to tackle, and drop all passes; 
near you. Don't ever knock a pass 
down when about to be caught by an 
opponent." It was remarkable howl 
our team straightened out after this! 
sage bit of advice. At the times 
when the stupid opposing ball carrier 
ran into us with the ball we could al- 
ways resort to "necking" tactics and 
thus win the praise and good will of 
our coaches. 

Now that your funny bone has 
been, tickled sufficiently let us seri-' 
ously consider the past season. In j 
view of the fact that a new coach and 
system has been installed and many 
of the stars were injured during the 
season, Washington College has not 1 
fared so badly. It must be admitted 1 
that some of the games were loosely 
played but to counterbalance that we 
won moral victories over some of our 
strongest rivals, notably. University 
of Maryland and Johns Hopkins Un-i 

The prospect of a good season in 
the next two years is being predict- 
ed by many of the football wise. We 
will, however, miss the playing of j 
these seniors: Captain Howard Plum- 
mer, Oliver Robinson, Albert Baker, 
and Deacon Carey, who gave many 
good performances during the past 

Keeping our faces to the front and ; 
our eyes on the future we say 'au I

Work On New Field 

Progressing Rapidly 

The operations concerned with the 
construction of the new athletic field 
are proving very interesting. The 
first noticeable sign of activity was 
more than a month ago, when trees 
were seen to wildly careen and fin- 
ally succumb to the force of the 
tractor pulling them down. 

Washington suffered defeat at the 
hands of St. Josephs in their final 
game of the season last Saturday by 
the score of 20 to 0. As usual, 
Washington met a team that dis- 
tinctly outweighed them in this game 
and although they played a hard, 
stubborn game, were overcome. 
Nicholson, kicking for his first time 
and playing his best game of the 
season, displayed an ability that 
should prove threatening to next 
year's foes. Gnmber played his us- 
ual consistent brand of ball, with 
Dobkins and Dickerson ranking with 
him. The game was massed by num- 
erous fumbles. Washington's best 
chance to score was samshed when 
Johnson, after receiving a pass from 
Robinson, was roughed up by three 
opposing players. Given a decent 
break Washington could undoubtedly 
have made a very creditable show- 
ing, but it has often been found im-_ 
possible to beat both the opposing

Bard Sings of a Long 
And Bitter Life 

Sing, muses, of that tribe of men 
who are in the first stages of learning 
— yea even they who wear the green 
headgear and are at continual vari- 
ance and strife with their masters. 
For though they are greater in num- 
bers and strength than their rulers, 
even so they are always the conquer- 
ed and oppressed. 

For as long as even Nestor, son of 
Neleus can remember, the conflict 
has been exceeding hot between the 
two sides. The Sophomores hold the 
Freshmen in continual bondage and 
servitude, and levy great tribute. 
They have courts of law in which 
they try the cases of the wrong-do- 
ers. They cause their inferiors to 
travel great distances — yea, even to 
the heart of Chestertown in quest of 
food and drink. And with the tri- 
bute money they feast and make mer- 
ry, and live well at the expense of 
the Freshman tribe. Even when 
they win a great battle, they have a 
dance in honor of the event. 

Even so the Freshmen do not sub- 
mit willingly to the leadership of 
their superiors. Several times in the 
course of a year does their bitterness 
break forth in hot rebellion against 
the lordly sophomores. Then indeed 
do they find opportunity to give vent 
to pent-up dislike. In the matter of 
weapons they are exceedingly ver- 
satile and can fight with anything. 
History records that they have been 
known to fight with mud, or a foot- 
ball, or even with signs and posters. 
The Sophomores retaliate by making 
raids in the dark of night, armed 
with wooden oar-shaped weapons. 
First one side wins, then the other, 
so the fates keep the issue in the bal- 

Such are the existing conditions 
between the two rival factions. Long 
have they existed, and long will they 
continue to exist. For only when 
the subjects overthrow the power of 
their lords will the oppression and 
conflict cease.

We wonder if the Utopian college 
will appeal to the apparent geome- 
trical precision of the student's mind 
by having walks which are the short- 
est distance between two points. If 
such was the case the burden of the 
grass-cutter would be considerably in- 

Perhaps the Lombardy poplars 
near the heating plant are aware of 
the proximity of warmth. Compare 
their defoliation to thut of other trees 
of the same species and you will find 
it to be considerably less. 

When a man forgets, he loses that 
which was the highest, the most 
plex, first. It is thus with trees, for 
their highest leaves, those which re- 
quired the greatest effort to sprout, 
fall first when Persephone returns to 
the realms of Pluto. 

We are thinking of writing a trea- 
ise on "How Many Miles The Aver- 
age Freshman Walks Per Day." The 
"footwork" of the Greeks at Mara- 
thon has a modern competitor for 
activity. Some scientists inform us 
that in a century or two the physiolo- 
gical appendage called the foot will 
have become useless, but we believe 
that these gentlemen attended a col- 
lege without sophomores. 

If we were gifted with a little 


more courage we would quote the a 
cepted etymology of sophomore. We 
maye note with impunity, however 
that the first Syllable of the wore 
comes from the Greek term foi 
"wise." The latter part of the word 
has a much different connotion. 

Our position when we criticize 
things with which we are little in con- 
tact is comparable to the words of G. 
B. S. in reference to Soviet Russia. 
An American writer replied to his 
praise of Bolshev — by saying that 
"Sovietism is an excellent condition 
if one is a wealthy playwright living 
in England." We faintly, though not 
very faintly, recall having various 
"Shawian" criticisms recorded on our 
auditory niembrnnces from time to 
time. Let them expire with the same 
feeling of willingness that you wit- 
ness the expiration of this artistry. 

Ml*, and Mrs. .lames Smith, of Che 
tertown, announce the marriage of 
their daughter, Margaret Elinoro, to 
Louis Knox, of Towson, Maryland, on 
Thanksgiving day, Mr. Knox grad- 
uated with honor from Washington 
College with the class of 1981. Since 
that time he has taught at Sparrows 
Point High School. He is tendered 
congratulations by his host of friends 
at the college. After January 1, Mr.

office, where he will occupy the man- 
agership. Mr. Usilton has been in- 
stituted into a position of consider- 
able responsibility, and is to be con- 
gratulated on his advance. While at 
Washington he distinguished himself 
as an athlete, and he won especial 
| laurels in the field of basket-ball.

eggs therein? 

In the fall and winter one sees 
huge flocks of stubby, short, black- 
looking birds covering the campus. 
by successive rolls of flight like those 
described by Homer. These birds 
are not the so-called blackbird, but 
are the European Starling. One who 
is privileged to examine a male of 
this species closely will find to his 
delight that the color is not black, 
but a multitude of metallic, irrides- 
cent hues. The starling frequently 
destroys the cavity-home of the blue- 
birds one may see hunting for hol- 
low posts in the environs of the ath- 
letic field. Perhaps the reason that 
the bluebirds, which must not be mis- 
taken for the Indigo Bunting (which 
lacks the rusty breast of the blue- 

bird, and is blue all over) do not nest 
in the cavities of the old ivy-covered 
tree in front of the gymnasium is be- 
cause a tiny gray owl was once 
found sitting in the thicker foliage 
of the vines, by a group of students. 
This little owl is the screech owl, 
and undoubtedly has a home in some 
deep limb-cavern. 

The flora of the campus is not as 
varied as the living objects, but 
many beautiful trees offer an oppor- 
tunity for study. 

Only a little of the interesting na- 
tural life of the campus has been 
mentioned in this limited space and 
it is nice to know that one can see 
around him here many of God's crea- 
tures of the outdoors. 


Writing Club May 

Be Organized Here 

A number of enterprising and lit- 
erary students have omsidered the 
formation "f a writing club under 
the direction of Dean Margaret 
Brewer. A group of students much 
interested in literary expression has 
already met in Dean Brewer's suite 
in Reid Hall to discuss the possibili- 
ties of the situation. 

The purpose of the organization 
would be to promote facility in writ- 
ing and to exchange ideas of a gen- 
eral nature among the members. 

Plans for the publication of the 
best efforts of the members of the 
writing club have also been discuss- 
ed. It is possible that this publica 
tion may take the form of a quarter- 
ly paper. 


x liked Chesterfield 
right from the start 

NO, I don't know a blessed thing 
about how cigarettes are made. But, 
of course, I would want the tobacco to 
be PURE. And then I've heard that the 
blending is very important. I'd want that 
to be done just right. 

"Then the paper. I don't like paper 
that you can taste — or smell when it's 
burning. I'd want that pure too. 

"Another thing. I want to smoke when- 
ever I feel like it — without worrying about 
smoking too many. So I want my ciga- 
rettes MILD. 

"But die main thing, of course, is 
TASTE. I don't care for over-sweet- 
ened cigarettes. I much prefer those that 
are just sweet enough. 

"Chesterfield seems to satisfy in every 
one of these ways. That is why I'd rather 
have a Chesterfield." 



SMOKERS tire of too much sweetness 
in a cigarette, and they don't like rawness. 
Fur a steady diet, they want a cigarette 
like CHESTERFIELD — a mild and mel- 
low smoke, free from any over-sweetness 
or any harshness or bitterness. That's 
why more and more smokers every day 
are changing to CHESTERFIELD. 
Good . . . they've got to be good.

Washington Players Stage 
Adam And Eva 

The Washington College Players, 
under the direction of Professor 
John D. Makosky, presented "Adam 
and Eva," a three-act comedy by Guy 
Bolton and George Middleton, on 
Friday evening, January 13th in 
William Smith Hall. 

The play begins when Mr. King 
played by Robert Furman, discovers 
that the family is attempting to get 
rid of him for a few months. He 
startles them by going off on his own 
accord and by leaving as their temp- 
orary father his business manager, 
Adam Smith, played by Lindley 
Cook. He becomes disgusted with 
the family and in an attempt to cure 
them of their extravagance tells them 
their money is entirely gone. The 
whole family finally determine to 
succeed by their own work and ad- 
venture into fanning, and other 
jobs. Mr. King returns to find them 
successful and happy.

(Special To Tho Elm) 
BALTIMORE— Hopkins, or rath- 
er young Don Kelly, defeated Wash- 
ington College at basketball in the 
Loyola gymnnsiuin here lust night by 
a score of 32 to 22 and administered 
the worst licking that n Washington 
cage team has taken from a State 
rival since the end of the World War. 
By tallying 21 of his team's total this 
same Kelly, the younger half of a 
brother-act, featured by Hopkins, es- 
tablished himself as one of the Free 
State's lending court stars. 

Washington was never in the run- 
ning last night. Putting up a sorry 
exhibition, lacking fight and dash, 
they led for less than one minute at 
the start of the contest when Huey's 
foul goal was the opening score of the 
game. Hopkins soon went into the 
lead when Caleb Kelly sank a two- 
pointer and from then on Washing- 
ton's view wus always from tho hind 

Tho Washington five, or thirteen, 
for Tom Kibler used that many play- 
ers in an attempt to lind a combina- 
tion that the Board of Health 
wouldn't rule a public nuisance, put 
on its poorest exhibition of the year 
when it needed its best. Hopkins 
was represented by a well-balanced 
and cool-playing crew of cagers. 

Of all the Washington players to 
get a chance only one, Ellery Ward, 
freshman from Alleghany High, Cum- 
berland, showed anything worthy of 
praise. Ward played well and hard. 
The Shoremen moved on to Em- 
mittsburg today for a game with Mt.

Arnold Bennett 

Beer li Innocent. Healthful 
Yantlell Henderson, professor of 
physiology at Yale, said, in pleading 
for the restoration of 4 per cent beer 
before the Senate Manufacturers 
Committee, "Beer is a normal, heal- 
thy outlet for natural energy- There's 
nothing more innocent, nothing more 
healthful for students than to sit 
down of an evening to sing songs and 
drink beer."

Arnold Bennett's last book "Im- 
perial Palace" adds very little, if 
anything to our literature. It is a 
-lory of a hotel — a very human ho- 
lt-], with all the humor, pathos and 
idiocyncracioa of the average indivi- 
dual. Tin- plot is very trivial— a 
charming girl attracts the attention 
of the hotel director. The entire 
book is supposed to hold the reader 
in suspense, as to whom the director

Now whether these figures mean anything or not it is ap-

our extra-curricular activities have become burdensome and 111 
some cases, both futile «nd senseless. Every student has the 
reasons at his finger tips. There are loo few that want to par- 
lake and not many more that are capable. With this comes 
the element of time. Thus one activity encroaches upon the 
time and talent of the other and the unpleasant result is that 
very few are worth the name. 

We haven't the temerity to suggest what organizations 
should be doomed to oblivion or. at least, consolidation, for the 
wrath of the disciples of the various groups would be, we are 
afraid, too much for us. Such a decision should come from 
some such deliberative body as the Dean's Cabinet (where it 
has already been discussed) or The Student Council. The act- 
ion should come from the student body. 

We only hope that this will serve as an incentive and that 
because of it we will release ourselves from the great Ameri- 
can craze for organization; to say nothing of the great small 
college fallacy — imitation of the university.

his books to be remembered.

In batting for old Slippery Elm

little to offer in the way of news this 
time for this lull before the exam

campus problems. 

With the basketball team turning 
wins, the Dramatic club producing 
and the seniors beginning to get 
wild-eyed over the search for jobs 
this year seems to be taking its 
course in about the same manner as 
the rest with the exception that 
George — with a thoughtfulness of his 
that we are thankful for — gave those 
guineas of his exactly one hundred 
and fifty years ago. Darned sport- 
ing, what? 

Just to steal a bit from our next 
door neighbor, Intereollegite, we 
quote : 

"Mr. Robert Thomas, instructor in 
saxophone, clarinet and violin, tells 
us that the saxophone quartette has 
begun practice. We expect much 
from this organization." 

That's not news that's a warning!

George Washington University's 
Inter-Fraternity Council has laid 
plans for a Dollar Dance. 


The present trend towards intramural sports which has 
been shown about the campus here by the organization of j 
dormitory and fraternity basketball teams, and by additions to 
the athletic field is one that is headed in the right direction. 

Besides the very obvious benefits of a more rational ath- 1 
letic program implying, as it does, a less one sided student body, , 
it brings a problem peculiar to Washington College to a more, 
logical solution. There is a doubt even in the most faithful of I 
rooters' minds that this college could ever compete on an even 
basis with colleges and universities of a larger size. In basket- 1 
ball we might, but the refusal of games is an obstacle that we 
would have to face. If we should ever go so low as to subsi- 1 
dize athletes in any way these larger schools, with their weal- 
thier alumni and their greater resources, would simply 
frounce us at that game as easily as they have trounced us on 
1he gridiron. 

So instead of following complacently in the somewhat con- 
laminated footsteps of those institutions that do take their in- 
tercollegiate athletics seriously, we should rather pattern our- 
selves after the more advanced universities that are now devot- 
ing more money and time for the development of athletics fori 
the common herd. 

This, as we have intimated, is what we are doing. Our; 
coaches and administrators should certainly be complimented j 
and loyally supported.

Flying Pentagon 
Meets Mt. St. Marys 

Close Game Expected To Be 




Fitzgerald Leads Pentagon 

Sports Notions 

By Phillip J. WingMe 


The Flying Pentagon meets Mt. St. 
Mary's tonight at Emmittsburg in its 
second state game of the season and 
the first game of a home and home 
series between the Jesuits and the 
local cagers. This game will be of 
vital importance to the Flying Penta- 
gon as a single loss to a state team 
may mean the difference between 
winning or failing to win the State 
championship which Coach Kibler's 
pupils dropped last year by a narrow 
margin after a five year's lease of the 
coveted title. 

This game should be rated practi- 
cally a toss up as the Mounts have 
a powerful quint, lead by Captain 
Joe Lynch, one of the most feared 
cagers in the state. The Jesuits al- 
ways have a particularly strong de- 
fensive team and the Washington 
dribblers will need all their skill if 
they wish to bombard the Mount bas- 
ket with any degree of success. Last 
year Mt. St. Mary's held the Flying 
Pentagon to its lowest score of the 

However, those who have observed 
Coach Kibler's pupils during the last 
week expect the Flying Pentagon 
to turn in a victory. With Giraitis, 
Proudfoot and Huey back in shape , 
to play, Washington will have its full 
strength on hand and this means that ' 
thethe locals will be set to play some; 
real basketball, 

Coach Kibler has been sending' 
members of the Flying Pentagon 
through rather stiff workouts for the 
past week and has stressed a passing, 
cutting style of play, which aims to 
control the ball until a close in shot 
at the basket is obtained. 

Washington College won its sec- 
ond straight game of the current 
season when it earned a close ver- 
dict over Rider College, of Trenton, 
N. J., Thursday night, December 16, 
at the local gymnasium. The game 
was one of many thrills, and only a 
late rally in the second half won for 
the Flying Pentagon. 

The Rider marksmen opened with 
3 rush, dazzled the Washington Col- 
lege dribblers with accurate passing 
and fine floor work, and stepped away 
to an 11 to 6 lead. Washington nev- 
er was ahead in the first half, but 
Fitzgerald's goal as the half ended 
brought the count to 11 all. 

The second half was a battle of 
point for point. Neither team gain- 
ed more than a two point lead until 
the game was nearly ended. At this 
time, Proudfoot and Fitzgerald, who 
was the leading scorer, tallied dou- 
ble deckers and Carozza made good 
a penalty shot to give the Flying 
Pentagon a five-point lead. A third 
spectacular shot by Russ of the vis- 
itors, however, ended the game with 
Washington the victors by 27 to 24.

The 1932 Edition of the Flying 
Pentagon is better supplied with re- 
serve material than any team in the 
staU- with the possible exception of 
Maryland. Coach Kibler ha< at 
least seven men of varsity calibre — 
players who are capable of stepping 
high in the fastest company. This 
situation has two advantages; it will 
cause the local cages to put forth 
their best efforts at all times if they 
wish to gain or retain a position, and 
it will prevent unfortunate occuren- 
ces such as last year's game with 
Hopkins, when the Flymg Pentagon 
was winged and left without high 
grade reserves. 

With Ollie Robinson captaining the 
present smooth passing, and cutting 
aggregation of cagers, 
the Flying Pentagon 
should be every bit as 
good as it has been in 
former years. Robin- 
son is the cleverest 
guard in the state be- 
sides being a steady 
and lighting leader, 
who can be depended 
on for his share of the 

Despite the fact that 
he is a little too short 
to be a great jumping 
center, Eddie Fitzger- 
ald is a real star at the 
center post. Fitz is a 
fast, clever passer who 

j Proudfoot keepS the bal1 in m °" 
tion and opens up the court for cut 
shots. He is a continual hustler and 
a fine outside shot. 

However, the real ace of the Fly- 
ing Pentagon, when he is ready to go 
and is not handicapped by injuries or 
illness is Del Proudfoot. Proudfoot 

'is one of the best under-the-basket 
6 j shots in this state or any other state. 
When Del ducks for the basket, the 
only way to stop him is to foul him. 
Besides this, Proudfoot is a very cool 
2? player who can see plays before most 
eagers can, and his passing game is 
such that he works well with any

The sudden writer's cramp thai bus 
struck both Slippery Elm and the 
"I" in "As I Like It" has tnnde, once 
more, the necessity for time out nnd 
a substitution, 

The pledge season is over and the 
aurora that hung over almost any 
fro.-hman in sound mind has sudden- 
ly disappeared. 

But we're not trying to sell tooth- 
postfl although we do wish our room- 
mate would buy some. 

Outside a bottle just broke but 
since there was only Inughter we 
know "God's in his Heaven all's

Tiie fact that soap is selling at Un- 
reduced price in the book store is 
either a sign of the depression or » 
crusade by the administration.

of: — people that live in glnss houses 
shouldn't take baths in the daytime.

The College Adjustment course is 
placed the last day of the examina-

call "check and double check." 

And we bet that nobody knows: — 
That Uncle Horace bad a good crack 
at the end of "Adam and Eva" which 
was loBt to the audience by a hasty 
Curtain; that "Maid In Waiting by 
Galsworthy has gone where all good 
books go; the the publicity depart-

compulsory to wear colonial drees to 
the June Ball; that u despised, and 
supposedly required school hour, is 
not necessary; that there is a senior 
who refuses to give his middle name 
to nnyone; and that one freshman 
has a middle name of Ambroso; that 
it is a hell of a lot of work to fill out

Kibbies Hope To Avenge 

The Flying Pentagon, will meet 
Johns Hopkins University's baskets 
ball quint in the local gymnasium to- 
night i nan effort to win back a por- 
tion of the prestige that it has lost 
because of defeats suffered at the 
hands of state opponents this season. 
The Kiblerites will be red-hot and 
ready to go to work with a will to- 
night because the sting of the defeat 
which Hopkins' Blue Jays administer- 
ed to them earlier in the season still 
forms a very sore spot. Since then 
the Flying Pentagon has turned in 
victories over Loyola and St. John's 
for state wins. It will be remember- 
ed that Loyola dropped a one point . 
decision to the Blue Jays while St. I 
John's downed them later by a single 

The locals have shown that they 
have the ability to sink the Hopkins 
combination if they play the brand 
of basketball they are capable of, and 
with every poaeible incentive to win 
urging them on and a partisan crowd 
behind them, Washington fans expect 
the Flying Pentagon to play even 
better basketball than it did in the 
second half of the St. John's game. 
The spiking of Don Kelly's guns will 
be the biggest problem facing the 
Washing-tomans, as the entire Hop- 
kins' attack centers around this scor- 
ing ace who uses a pivot shot from 
anywhere around the foul circle with 
telling effect. It was Kelly who al- 
most single handedly defeated the 
Flying Pentagon in Baltimore.

Dr. Esther Dole T alks 
To Mt. Vernon Society 

The authority of the Vigilance 
Committee was questioned last Tues- 
day night at the meeting held in 
Room 20 of William Smith Hall when 
one freshman brought before the tri- 
bunal refused to carry out the pen- 
alty of wearing a girl's dress for one 
week, for the offences of "failure to 
salute an upper classman, failure to 
obey a reasonable request, and fail- 
ure to remain in the freshman sec- 
tion of the cafeteria." Because of 
the refusal the case was placed in the 
hands of Student Council. 

The other twelve cases brought be- 
fore this deliberative body were dis- 
pensed with summarily by prescrib- 
ing the following penalties: shining 
shoes, making beds, (in Middle Halt) 
walking backwards, wearing pants in- 
side out, getting names from the 
tombstones in the local graveyard, 
and carrying unlighted corn cob pipes 
in the mouth. All penalties with the 
exception of the fifth one were to 
last for the period of one week. 

The Vigilance Committee is com- 
posed of one Sophomore member 
from each fraternity, and one from 
each floor of Middle Hall. 

Celebrate Death Of 
J o h a n n W. Goethe 

Dr. P. E. Titsworth Gives 
Illustrated Talk 

The centenary of the death of 
Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Germany's 
greatest writer, was celebrated at 
Washington College recently by a 
speech by Dr. Paul E. Titsworth in 
William Smith Hall. 

The lecture was illustrated by lan- 
tern slides, which were provided 
through the courtesy of the German 
Tourist Information office in New 
York City. 

The lecture was attended by the 
students of the German department 
and others. 

The feature of the Mt. Vernon Lit- 
erary Society program Wednesday, 
February 10th, was an account of her 
recent trip to Egypt by Dr. Dole. 

Plans are being made for the an- 
nual Mt. Vernon banquet which will 
be held Saturday, March 12th, im- 
mediately after the Alumni game. 
President Branford has appointed the 
following committees to make ar- 
rangements for the banquet. 

Program Committee: Covey, Tits- 
worth, Beachly. 

Menu and Decoration Committee: 
Coucill, Noble, Atwater, Jewell, Rich-

Plans Made To Publish 
Literary Magazine Here 

Shakespearean Class 
Stages "Romeo And Juliet'* 

Dr. Gertrude Ingalls Directed 

At the bi-weekly meeting of the 
Writer's Club of Washington Col- 
lege, held in Dean Brewer's study in 
Reid Hall at S P. M. on Wednesday, 
January 20th, further plans were sug- 
gested for the publication of a liter- 
ary magazine, and papers were read 
by a number of the members. 

Offering Washington College its 
first Shakespearean drama for many 
years, the Shakespeare class of Wash- 
ington class of Washington College 
under the direction of Dr. Gertrude 
Van Arsdale Ingalls staged the trag- 
edy of "Romeo and Juliet" in Wil- 
liam Smith Hall the evening of Jan- 
uary 22nd. 

The novelty of a minuet in the first 
act, the elaborate Elizabethan cos- 
tumes furnished by A. T. Jones and 
Sons of Baltimore, and the very cred- 
itable performance of the college 
players made the presentation an in- 
teresting one. Juliet as portrayed by 
Emily Jewell, the characterization of 
the Nurse by Alice Dole, and the 
parts of the jolly Mercutio and the hot 
tempered Capulet as taken by Albert 
Dowling and Warren Carey were all 
worthy of especial praise. 

The orchestra was under the dh-ec- 
tion of Dr. Fred G. Livingood. Miss 
Doris T. Bell trained the cast in the 



Coach "Tom" Kibler stated here 
today that every effort would be 
made to put an end to the booing of 
officials and players during the games 
in the college gymnasium. The af- 
fair was brought to a crisis when 
Paul Menton, referee of the St, 
John's-Washington game, awarded a 
second shot to a visiting player be- 
cause of the conduct of the crowd. 


"Too much to do, not enough time 
to do it" was the creed thnt Miss 
Lyda Lee Tall, principal of the Tow- 
son Normal School, Towaon, Md., ad- 
vised the students at the Thursday 
assembly on February 11 to adopt. 

Miss Tall gave a brief resume of 
the testing progrum at the Towson 
Normal School showing its results 
and the problems of education it re- 
veals. She explained how, with the 
aid of the statistics gathered, some 
of these problems are settled and 
some cases of individual maladjust- 
ment are solved. 

That education might seriously 
question itaclf as to its efficiency in 
selection of students, and the pre- 
paration of courses of study, was 
firmly stressed by the speaker. The 
results of the Pennsylvania inquiry 
which showed that the improvement 
in vocabulary and general knowledge 
was very slight during the four years 
of college study was quoted as evi 

"I have only one fault to find with 
younger generation," said Miss Tall 
"They feel that the world owes them 
a living. 

"I firmly believe that they are aa 
morally correct as their grandfathers 
and grandmothers," 

On his recent itinerary which ex- 
tended from Cincinnati, Ohio, to 
Danbury, Connecticut, Dr. Titsworth 
attended a dual meeting of the Lib- 
eral Arts College movement and the 
Association of American Colleges at 
the former city, made several per- 
sonal contacts with Washington Col- 
lege alumni in various eastern cities, 
and with William H. Danneberg vis- 
ited Stony Brook Preparatory 
School, Stony Brook, Long Island, in 
tho interest of the new-student cam- 

At Cincinnati Dr. Titsworth enter- 
tained five Washington College alum- 
na and the husband of one of the 
alumna at dinner. The guests were: 
Joseph Alexander, '30, manager of 
the R. K. 0. Family Theatre; Wil- 
liam T. Hastings, '29, and William C. 
Dodds, '30, manager and assistant 
manager respectively of the R. K. O. 
Lyric Theatre; Mrs. Nellie Saunders 
Bennett, '29, and husband, who is a 
chemist and graduate of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland; and Mr. and Mrs. 
C. Harry Shriver, '29. Mr. Shriver 
is manager of the R. K. 0. Capitol 

Dr. Titsworth attended a benefit 
card party given by the Washington 
Chapter of the Alumni Association 
at Washington, D. C, on Saturday, 
January 23rd. The proceeds of this 
social function will be used to estab- 
lish a loan fund for students attend- 
ing Washington College. Rodger J. 
Bounds, '24, of the U. S. Chamber of 
Commerce was chairman of the Com- 
mittee of Arrangements. Among 
the eighty who were present were the 
following from Washington College: 
Dr. Jones, Prof, and Mrs. Ford, and 
Mr. and Mrs. Coop. 

At a dinner at the Hotel Pennsyl- 
vania in New York where Dr. Tits- 
worth entertained a gToup of alumni 
on January 25th were: Wm. H. Stew- 
art, ex-'94, Adrienne Richards, '28/, 
Baker Shelton, '28, John Anderson, 
'29, Marion Rosin, '29, and Harvey 
W. Culp, ex-'25. This Chapter will 
have a get-together on Saturday, 
March 19th.

Recently at the American Univer-

ly meritorious acts: first, to change 
a name of a course and second, to ac- 
complish the real purpose for which 
a student council is organized; the up- 
holding of student interests. The ac- 
count is reprinted below. Read it 

"Considering the matter of the 
proposed compulsory "Bible" course 
for new students, the Council was of 
the opinion that the new course is not 
objectionable since it is to be studied 
from a historical and literary point 
of view rather than from a sectarian 
attitude. It was thought, however, 
that another name should be substi- 
tuted for the present title of the 
course, "Freshman Bible." 

It was voted to have a committee 
appointed to consider the administra- 
tion of athletics and make recom- 
mendations for changes. Mr. F . 
is chairman of the committee. 

A committee was appointed to in- 

of fo. 


ing Room. The Council felt that 
bonrd fees should be lessened in keep- 
ng with the general lowering of costs 
jf food." 


Thai The Student Government of Washington College 
which was once an active force in student life is now not much 
more than an empty honor for the leaders of our college is a 
fnct that any observer of student life cannot with honesty deny. 

We realize that we are stepping into an extremely hot ar- 
gument when we venture on this, for the opinions held on the 
subject are many. The warmth with which they are defended 
is by no means small. The faculty feels that the Council has 
not shown itself completely capable of handling many of the 
eases that come up : some students believe that the Faculty Dis- 
i 'inline Committee encroaches upon the domains of the Student 
Council; others stale that that body is just simply inefficient. In 
the midst of all this stands the poor Council wondering in what 
incidents it should act and how. It passes its time by deciding 
the weighty question of activity pins for all organizations. 

Now we have no case against the members of that body 
themselves, We honestly believe that they are the leaders of 
their respective classes, and that they themselves are capable 
of more meaningful wotk. The reasons for the lack of conh- 
dence that is now so plainly present on the campus and even in 
the council itself is found outside the room in which the body 
meets. They are two: the bounds of their jurisdiction are not 
clearly enough defined; and the clause of the Member Pledge 
slating thai a student must, report a violation of the Honor 
Code to the Student Council is not upheld by the students. We 
might add as an after thought that we have our doubts as to 
whether any parts of the Membership or Honor Pledges are up- 
held by enough oMhe student body to make them practical. 

The fiasco that was held in 1929 is certainly not the way to 
remedy these very apparent defects. A meeting of committees 
from both the Student Council and the Faculty Discipline Com- 
mittee should he held wherein a few feasible amendments to the 
constitution could be drawn up. These could then be submit- 
ted to the student body for voting as is provided for in the con- 
stitution. The faculty would then certainly give them the nec- 
essary approval. 

If we. as students, want an organization with vitality some 
such action must be asked for. In no sense would this be in a 
spirit of antagonism towards the administration. If it is decid- 
ed that the Student Council shall be a body devoted to passive- 
ly receiving the ''buck" and deciding the date of the Sophomore- 
Freshman football game and other such vital affairs, we would 
then know how ' v o rate it. It would no longer be a sham or a 
pretense. If it was decided to give it more power, we would 
again know where to rate it; it would become a power in mold- 
ing student opinion and in carrying out its other duties. With 
this would appear social sense necessary among the students to 
carry out the Membership Pledge to its last clause.

The campus had assumed a state of 
calmness during the past two weeks, 
abating, no doubt, the stormy exam 
period. However, the fury has be- 
gun again, due to the sudden outburst 
of marks which caused no little anx- 
iety among the students. 

Our attention is called to the ad- 
verse spirit exhibited during the re- 
cent basket ball games at Washington 
College. Booing is an indication of 
poor sportsmanship, and entirely un- 
necessary among college students. 
The practise has caused some unfav- 
orable comments that do not add to 
the reputation of the college. 

Eli Culbei-tson has acquired many 
followers among our students, for the 
contract system has become quite 
a fad, (ask the frats, they know). 
Up to the wee hours of the morning 
the addicts may be observed, intently 
engaged in the pleasant diversion. 
We are glad to note the mental de- 
velopment accompanying the con- 
tract wave, and sincerely hope it 
leads to no tragic ending. 

In starting the inter-mural basket- 
ball games Washington College has 
done a laudable thing. For such a 
series of games fosters cooperation 
that is invaluable to any college. 
Again, it offers competition among 
the students, and in this way national 
ability is developed. 

During the recent spell o fwarm 
weather the campus has been under- 
going a rejuvination. Dandelions 
have begun to sprout, reminding us 
that winter is almost over (over, 
hasn't it begun?) Lacrosse nets are 
also in evidence winding around 
the elm. The incessant chatter- 
ing of some new arrivals, has also 
been noted, particularly the starlings 
anil English sparrows, who have fav- 
ored us with their presence, as 
harbringers of spring. With spring 
in the air Reid Hall and "the Hill" 





At last the students have revolted! A very minor revolt 
it is true, but still a revolt. This natural and supposedly ever- 
occuring youthful activity has at last been found on our campus. 
Unfortunately we have to record here for eternity that the 
stimulus that first brought about this response was felt upon the 
bellies and not the brains of our fellow knowledge seekers. 

It is very sad that with all the false and unjust things pre- 
sented by this upheaving world we should choose such a cause 
to fight for. Not long ago in Spain the university men fought 
and were wounded for a new republic. In Russia thousands of 
them are dying : n the coal mines for their cause. Throughout 
the world more thousands of them are armed for the almost lost 
cause of peace. And it takes the reactions of our stomachs to 
stir us up! It is >ery sad. 


WITH the application of electricity to aircraft 
instruments, another chapter was written in the 
annals of air transportation. To-day's ship is not only 
swifter but safer and more dependable. Modern 
depth-sounding devices indicate instantly the heisht of 
the ship above the ground surface. A unique feature 
of General Electric's recently purchased monoplane 
is the almost completely electrified instrument panel. 

The most recently developed instrument is the sonic 
altimeter, which provides a quick means of indicating 
changes in height above ground. Sound from an 

intermittently operated air whistle is directed down- 
ward. The echo is picked up in a receiving megaphone, 
and the sound is heard through a stethoscope. The 
elapsed time between the sound and the echo 
determines the height. Tests show that water, build- 
ings, woods, etc., produce echoes that are different 
and characteristic. 

Besides developing a complete system of aircraft in- 
struments, college-trained General Electric engineers 
have pioneered in every electrical held — on land, on 
sea, and in the air.

Dr. Murphy, Former Biology Head, 

Writes Of Life In China 

Gives Account Of Chinese MT. VERNON ELECTS OFFI- 
Luncheon She Attended CERS F0R C0MING YE AR 

By Janet Atwater 
News of Dr. Helen Murphy, form- 
er head of the biology department at 
Washington College, now at Ling 
Nan University in Canton. China, was 
received by Miss Snodgrass on Jan. 
20th, by a letter from the former's 
sister. Miss E. Murphy. Dr. Mur- 
phy's family for a while had been 
quite worried because they had re- 
ceived no word from her. On Nov, 
15, a three months silence was brok- 
en by a brief cablegram: "Fine," 
which, although very unsatisfactory, 
at least meant she was alive. The 
day after Thanksgiving the first let- 
ter arrived, in which she explained 
that she had been putting her letters 
in the Nationalist Government mail 
box, and only quite accidentally dis- 
covered that the Cantonese Govern- 
ment did not collect mail from it. At 
hat date nothing more had been 
heard from her, except a cable just 
before Christmas saying: "Season's 
Greeting's Better Canton tonight. 
Since several days before, a messag 

Dr. Helen E. Murphy 

from the Trustees office, had come 
saying she was in good health, the 
"better" was rather puzzling, and al- 
so the fact that a trip to Canton 
should be important enough to cable 
about at 88c a word. 

She finds China even more inter- 
esting than she had anticipated. Ap- 
parently there is a good deal of soc- 
ial life, judging from the number of 
teas and dinners, at which she had 
been entertained. Her account of 
one particular luncheon was amus- 

A large party — 30 Americans and 
Chinese — were taken to the top story 
of a building in an old section of 
Santon, arriving at 12:30 o'clock. 
They made themselves comfortable 
on backless chairs and were served 
tea, peanuts, and squash seeds fo 
several hours, while they talked con 
tinuously. Then at 3 o'clock the 
real feast began, and since it consist 
ed of twenty two courses, Dr. Mur 
phy wished she had "gone easy" on 
the tea. Among the dishes mention 
ed were: shark fin soup, bird's nest 
soup, pickled eggs, preserved eggs, 
(ancient and dried) snake steak, 
roast duck, lima beans, — "and other 
things too numerous to mention." 
They finished at six o'clock and left 
immediately since it is polite to leave 
as soon ns one finishes. 

So far she had not learned much 
of the language. Meaning depends 
on voice inflection and she found the 
singing chant a little difficult. She 
did, however, write her name on the 
envelope in Chinese characters. 

Dr. Murphy is living with Miss Gil- 
ray, with whom she went across, and 
Miss Gill, of the Home Economics 
staff. They had a house-maid, a 
laundress, and a cook, and were get- 
ting along famously in their estab- 
lishment, according to that latest bul- 
letin. Dr. Murphy seemed to be 
having a great time and was thorough- 
ly enjoyirg the adventure.

Protestant Episcopal Church at the 
Elkton Armory on Thursday, Feb, 4. 

The quartette was composed of 
Walter Branford, tenor; Linwood 
Cook, 2nd tenor; L C. Williams, 1st

"Vocations For Women" Is 
Topic For Discussion 

The second of the series of discus- 
sions groups being sponsored by the 
Young Women's Christian Associa- 
tion was conducted by n committee 
of Freshmen on Sunday evening, 
February 7th. 

The topic for discussion wns "Vo- 
cations for Women." The program, 
being well arranged and prepared, 
proved to be one of the most inter- 
esting and profitable of the programs 
conducted thus far. There was a 
marked increase in attendance over 
the former meetings, 

Tho Freshmen in charge of the 
group were Ruth Barnett, Helene 
Servais and Evelyn Roe. 

Dr. Paul E. Titsworth gave the sec- 
ond of a series of talks on journalism 
in room 11 of William Smith Hall on 
tho evening of Wednesday, Fcbrunry

The Flying Pentagon meets Hop-

for I hi- locals will be the stopping of 
Don Kelly, ace of the Blue Jay quin- 
tet. If Coach Kibler succeeds in 
finding a man who can do this, the 
Washington inns should have little 
trouble in avenging the one sided de- 
feat which they received at the hands 
of the Hopkins' quintet in Baltimore 
earlier in the season. The local 
cagers will need to play the type of 
fast, aggressive basketball that they 
turned on St. John's in the sec- 
ond half of last Saturday's game, in 
order to be most effective against 
their Baltimore rivals. George Par- 
ley's Hopkins cage exponents eat up 
a slow- moving team and when at- 
tacking their opponents goal use a 
style of play that is hard to guard. 
Particularly is this true of Kelly who 
uses the bucket shot considerably and 
shoots from over his head.

Loyola Falls 
Before Kiblerites 

Robinson, Proudfoot, And 
Huey Star 

The Flying Pentagon struck its real 
pace for the first time this season 
against a state opponent, and defeat- 
ed its old rival, Loyola, by a comfort- 
able margin of 10 points, and there- 
by won its first state game. The game 
was played January 23rd, and a ca- 
pacity crowd filed into the local gym- 
nasium to watch Coach Kibler's pu- 
pils thoroughly trounce the Grey- 
hounds who had just a few days be- 
fore sent the University of Mary- 
land's Southern Conference quint 
down to a one point defeat. The 
game was featured by the brilliant 
playing of Del Proudfoot, Capt. Rob- 
inson, and Harry Huey. Ollie Rob- 
inson camped over Vince Carling, ace 
of the Jesuits, and by a brilliant ex- 
hibition of guarding held him to a 
single fiell goal, which Carlin rang up 
on a long shot from the center of the 

On the attack the Kiblerites play- 
ed a careful game, passing in and out 
through the Loyola zone defense un- 
til a break came that resulted in a 
shot for the basket. This attack cen- 
tered around Huey, in the bucket, and 
Proudfoot over in one corner of the 
court. Harry Huey, played a bang-| 
up game throughout the contest and 
was high scorer for the night. How- 
ever, it was the brilliant Proudfoot 
with his uncanny shots under and 
around the basket that completely 
wrecked the Loyola zone defense and 
scattered the fragments about the 
court. This tall, supple forward sta- 
tioned himself just inside the first 
line of the Grey hound defense and 
when the ball was passed to him eith-j 
er worked himself free for a shot by j 
one of the most marvelous exhibitions 1 
of weaving and ducking ever seen on 
a state court or else sucked in the de- 
fense and made a shot for one of his 
team-mates. The Bultimoreans were 
completely at loss as to how they 
might solve the problem of keeping j 
Proudfoot from caging double-deck- 1 
ers until he went out of the game j 
due to a knee injury, with about ten j 
minutes remaining to be played. 

Loyola threatened only once after | 
the early part of the game. This 
was shortly after the second half op- 
ened, when a shot by Tanneyhill and 
Carlin's lone fied goal cut the lead of 
the locals to a single point. Tan- 
neyhill played the best brand of bas- 
ketball for the Greyhounds. 

The lineup and summary 


St. Joseph's College, of Philadel- 
phia made it five straight basket- 
ball victories over Washington Col- 
lege, by winning a very close game in 
the Washington College gymnasium, 
Saturday night, January 30th, by the 
low score of 18 to 16. 

The game was featured by very 
close guarding, attested to by the 
targe number of fouls each side com- 
mitted, and by tho fact that only five 
field goals were made during the en- 
tire game, three of these being made 
by St. Joseph's. 

The first half ended with Washing- 
ton leading 11 to 7, although making 
good on only two field shots, Fitzger- 
ald was deadly on the foul line and 
before the game ended, he had made 
eight free throws successful for a 
perfect record 

The second half was one in which 
Coach Kibler used five forwards and 
St. Joe three. But these eight to- 
gether could score but one field goal 
during the half, this being made by 
the visitors. 

Ollie Robinson continued to wreck 
the reputation of visitor's aces, by 
holding the high scoring Zuber score- 
less as far as field goals were con- 
cerned. Time after time he would 
ruin perfect shots of this star. The 
game was no night for forwards, and 
only because St. Joseph's was able to 
break the monotory of bad shooting, 
by sinking just one in the second half, 
was the local quint beaten.

With much understanding Mr.

the Brownings; their romance, their 
careers, and their retirement in Italy. 
We meet Robert Browning as a dash- 
ing, gallant lover, composing poetry 
to amuse the gentle Elizabeth Bar- 
rett, of Wimpole Street. As a young 
intellectual the poet first tried to 
write plays, but meeting with failure, 
he answered the call of the muses.

poets, Robert and Elizabeth Brown- 
ing stands out in history as one of tht 
noblest and most beautiful affnirs. At 
first courting Miss Barrett by means 
of letters, the poet became an elo- 
quent and ardent Don Juan. Upon 
actually meeting the promising poet, 
Browning became so fascinated by 
her charming personality that for 
days he was entranced in a state of 
ecstasy. To the invalid woman. 
Browning came like a gift of the 
Gods, for she had never before ex- 
perienced a friendship. Their lives 
together seem like a flash — an elope- 
ment to France, a few years of bliss 
in Italy, and then the untimely death 
of Mrs. Browning. The death of his 
wife changed the life of the poet en- 
tirely, as he soon emerged from his 
retirement, in an attempt to forget 
his sorrows. In London he became 
England's foremost social leader. 
Says Mr. Loth, "He was an ideal soc- 
ial lion, so gentle a child might ap- 
proach him, yet preserving all the re- 
gal dignity of his untamed, unpre- 
dictable, temperamental, and unman- 
nerly colleagues." 

Browning, for the first time met 
with much popularity. "Browning So- 
cieties" became quite fashionable the 
world over and the ageing poet spent 
his remaining years in a series of 
dinner and theatre parties, 

Mr. Loth ha sdone an admirable 
piece of work, that is sure to afford 
the reader much pleasure. Written 
in a highly sympathetic tone, the 
reader can not help but appreciate 
the true genius of both Robert and 
Elizabeth Browning.

The paneling believed by Borne to 
have been the work of CHnling Gib-

that in the Brice and HnynHammond

did not release their purchase. 

Much concern was felt when it was

Baltimore Alumni Hold 

Annual Dinner Dance 



Thc Flying Pentagon moves over to 
Baltimore tonight to play Loyola's 
Greyhound quintet, and for the first 
time in several years, the state cham- 
pionship will not hinge on the out- 
come of this game. During the past. 
several years, the second of the home 
and home series between the Kiblcr- 
itos and the Jesuits has been ployed 
down here, but this year the order 
of the games was reversed. 

However, the intense rivalry that 
h;is grown up between Washington 
and Loyola still makes the game of 
vast, importance to Washington and 
Loyola backers and to the players 
themselves. A victory by either 
of these teams over the other would 
yield balm enough to relieve the 
sting from several defeats Buffered 
elsewhere, The reputation that 
these two teams have of always play- 
ing great basketball whenever they 
meet should pack the big gymnasium 
out at Evergreen. The Fi>i,iK '■ 
lagon has yet to turn in a single vic- 
tory on a foreign court, and the de- 
sire to win at least once nway from 
home will be added to the great em- 
phasis that is alwnys attached to the 
fray with the Greyhounds. 

Coach Kibler will use the same 
style of attack over in Baltimore that 
he employed down here, earlier in 
the season to defeat Loyola by a ten 
point margin. Robinson and Cnroz- 
za will play outside, passing the ball 
into either Huey, Johnson or Proud- 
foot. Proadfoot and Johneon will 
station themsclvct) in the corners of 
the court, and Huey will play the 
bucket. The locals will get shots, 
using this system and with Proudfoot 
back in form, should chalk up suffi- 
cient two pointers to take the decis- 

The Greyhounds will bank heavily 
on Carlin, their long shooting for- 
ward and Tanneyhill, his clever run-

SATURDAY, FEB. 27, 1932 


Now that tin' commotion brought on by a Freshman's re- 
fusal to carry out an edict of the Vigilance Committee and wear 
a dress about l he college for a week, has subsided, we find that 
1 Ik- Student Council's position has been strengthened by the 
support of the administration and that also, the authority of the 
Vigilance Committee remains unquestioned in such matters. 
The Freshman will carry out the original order of the Sopho- 

Nov; that is all very line and as it should be, but we are be- 
ginning to question all that is back of this. Many semester 
hours have been worked away since first those Freshmen sang 
•"Mow Dry I Am" on the gymnasium steps, and during that time 
we have gotten to know many of them very well. And, if our 
memory lias not deserted us the ten or twelve "rat" rules were 
beginning to gel very tiresome to us about this time of our 
Freshman year. With this in mind we wonder if it is not rath- 
er foolish to still plague these men with our rather childish 
rules? Perhaps not all should go, for their work on the mail 
route, the cotillions, and on other such functions is often neces- 
sary. Certainly saluting, and the wearing of caps — to men- 
tion but two — should have been disposed of before mid-years. 
Such is the custom in the majority of colleges where "ratting" 
Is slid preserved. Let us, too, be lenient. 

If ever there was a dull week for 
news, this last one has been it. Even 
the bull sessions have subsided. 

Many of the basketball fans are 
looking forward to the alumni game 
when all the old stars limber up their 
stiffened joints. That, with the 
Home-Coming Cotillion featuring AI 
Ho! lander's band, will make the old 
college wake up for awhile. 

We predict that this will probably 
be the last year for the above orches-j 
tra to be here for it is fnst becoming 
nationally popular. And the coffers 
of I he Cotillion Club have very decid- 
ed limits. 

If the chairman of the decoration 
committee is not hampered by ther 
same things that hamper all decor-. 
alion chairmen we also predict that 
his pent house scheme will make the 
best decoration seen for many a 

What has happened to all the plans' 
to make the Loyola game the excuse 
for ha eha chaing in Baltimore? Is 
it the depression or the fact that, 
there is no longer a group here con-! 
genial enough to ha cha cha to-gether, 
to say nothing of hey nonny nonny- 

And did yon know that: this has 
been the quietest year, so the admin- 
istration reports, from the stand- 1 
point of discipline; last Saturday I 
was St. Cristopher's Feast Day ob- 
irved by all good church men; that] 
there is a Gamma Sigma sorority at j 
Connecticut College as well as at our 
own institution; the paper being put 
out by the Writer's Club is the first I 
one in the known history of the col-] 
lego that could be called a literary 
magazine; THE ELM, then THE 
COLLEGIAN, was printed eight 
times in 1928-29; Harry Russell, now 
connected with THE ENTERPRISE 
was the first to publish the college 
paper in newspaper form; it was then 

light page paper; there were sor- 
orities in 1905-06; Dean Jones used 
to live in Rcid Hall? 



To The Editor of THE ELM: 


Social refinement, good taste, 
and proper etiquette, everyone will 
agree, should mark the college edu- 
cated man or woman. He or she has 
been refined, and carefully nurtured 
seholnstically, and when the day of 
graduation arrives, he is announced 
by the institution as being "well 
rounded," mentally. However, I 
and the others who have talked with 
me, believe that there is still remain- 
ing another breach, before the college 
can call its graduates "well rounded" 
men and women. That breach re- 
mains along social lines. I am sure 
that most of the students will agree 
with the writer that the greater num- 
ber of those in attendance at Wash- 
ington are relatively ignorant, social- 
ly speaking. Backwardness is move 
or less natural along these lines, and 
only now and then is some fortunate 
student made to realize the fact ofi 
his short-comings along social lines, 
in time for him to get down to work I 
and learn the "rules" for himself. 

Why shouldn't the college give a 
course in "Social Education," say, 
for want of a better name? Off- 
hand, we might suggest this course, 
of one Semester, to consist of the 
elements of table etiquette, proper 
dress; proper manners when in for- 
mal and informal company; proper 
forms of social correspondence, ele- 
mentary dancing, and other minor 
points. While this course might 
mean, the admission by some of the 
so called "social lights" that they 
still have some things to learn, it, too 
would tend to place the social status 
of the entire student body on a plane 
by far exceeding the present level.

establishment of two such fine prizes as the Errol L. Fox 
Memorial Cups for inter-sorority and inter-fraternity scholar- 

It is particularly fitting that awards for scholarship be 
given as a memorial to Dr. Fox who was himself an excellent 
scholar and a fine judge of scholastic ability in others. We 
have no doubt but that the awards will accomplish the aims of 
their giver, Mrs. Knoll Fox, who hopes in this way to stimulate 
the scholarship of those groups whose interest Dr. Fox had 
ever at heart.

Colonial Dress Is 
Style For June 11 

When the bicentennial celebration 
»f the birth of George Washington 
is brought to its climax here on June 
11th at the joint festivities of Wash- 
ington College and Kent county it 
will be the aim of the Committee on 
History, of which E- Clarke Fon- 
taine, is chairman, to have everybody 
appear in colonial costumes. 

This committee, which is to be a 
court of final authority on the auth- 
enticity of costumes, has organized 
into sub-committees and will be very 
active between now and the time of 
the celebration. A committee on 
costumes has been formed and will 
be composed of Miss Jennie Wilkins, 
Mrs. W. T. Brown. Miss Lelia N. 

Ware and Mrs. Amy McMenamin. 

A committee on the historical as- 
sociation of Washington with Kent 
county is composed of Dr. W. R. 
Howell, M. deK. Smith, Miss Bessie 
Stuart. P. H. Ruth and Morris Keene 

A committee, which will aim to ar- 
range a museum exhibit of colonial 
pieces is composed of Mrs. H. G. 
Stine, Mrs. Edward V. Clark, Mrs. 
W. G. Smyth and Page Gale. 

The costume committee has issued 
the following bulletin on colonial 

"The pjrind of Washington's life 
is marked by great richness and ex- 
travagance in dress. Boston, New 
York and Philadelphia were centers 
of fashion. 

"Materials of which costumes were 
made were imported brocades, taf- 
fetas, poplins, silks and satins. Ladies 
adorned themselves with necklaces. 


flowers, airprottes, handkerchiefs, silk 
gloves, mitts, satin shoes and silk 
hose and in winter with lavish furs. 

"Colonial gentlemen of the period 
wore the fashionable dress adapted 
from the French of 1700. The coat 
was straight and full skirted and the 
tails stiffened with buckram or wad- 
ding. Waistcoats were long, often 
elaborately trimmed with lace and 
embroidery. Shoes with square toes 
were giving way to the more pointed, 
with red heels still in vogue. 

"Colonial dames wore low cut 
bodices. In the National Museum in 
Independence Hall, Philadelphia, is 
a costume of the period. It is of 
yellow damask silk looped back with 
narrow braid and ribbons. The 
bodice and edges of the skirt are 
edged with ruchings (double ruffles) 
of qinked material. The dainty slip- 
pers are of white satin. 

"Powdered hair became fashionable : 
about 1750. 

"About l"o5 the wntteau came in 
high favor. These were long Sac- 
ques falling to the floor and often 
looped in polonaise fashion to show 
the 1'osily petticoat. These were 
made of silks and brocade, and also 
of muslin, dimity and oilier dainty 
fabrics. Between 1770 and 1770 
quilted petticoats wore in high favor. 

"The little cap so fashionable in 
Washington's administration dates 
back to colonial times. It was made 
of laces and tine gauze and remained 
m vogue for nearly half a century. 

"Distinguishing characteristics of 
colonial dress. 

"WOMEN. The hooped pettlcont, 
the pointed bodice, the fichu, and the 
little cap. 

"MEN. Straight long cont, ela- 
borate long waistcoat, knee breeches, 
low "hne* with hueklos." 


Dr. Esther M. Dole addressed the 
Chestertown Rotary Club Monday 
evening at its celebration of the bi- 
centennial of Washington's bivth.

Washington backers to believe that 
[the Johnnies could out-class the Fly-

Both Loyola and Washington have 
played some great games of basket

have enjoyed some nights that were 
decidedly spotty. 

The Flying Pentagon defeated the

Both lounges of Reid Hall were at-

ing a different effect. Entrance to 
the dance floor was gained between 
two gaily bedecked pillars of color, 
beneath a suspended Alpha Kappa 
banner. Each window present-

having, in one lounge, a rainbow 
background of graduated colors in 
pastel shades, and in the second 
lounge, a background of brilliant col-

tic design. The "Washingtonians," 
under the direction of "Reds" Mof-

Another fascinating book is "Quiet : 
Street" by Ossorgin. It is a Russian 
story with a mystery, told in a de- 
lightful manner. 

"Easter Island" by Casey is a trav-| 
el book dealing with adventures in the 
islands in the South Pacific. It re- 
veals for the first time the secrets of, 
one of the world's most mysterious 
cultures, half occidental, half orien- 

Hilaire Bellois' biography of "Wol- 
sy" the phenomenon of the 16th Cen- 
tury, attempts to establish the char- 
acter and motives of the churuhman, 
who figured so prominently during 
the reign of Henry VIII. 

Van Loon's "R. V. R." is a detail- 
ed account of the last years and 
death of the celebrated painter and 
etcher Rcmbrondt. It discusses 
quite freely the great tragedy of the 
Dutch genius, who met with failure 
during his own life time, but who is 
today considered one of the world's 
greatest artists. 

Another interesting book is "Anci- 
ent Civilizations of the Andes" by 
Mears. This book gives accurate ac- 
counts of the South American civili- ,

"Napoleon and His Family" by 
Geer, is a detailed account of the 
laws of the French Emperor, and 
shows quite simply the marked in- 
fluence of his brothers and sisters 
over him. The book attempts to ac- 
count for the downfall of the man 
"best endowed by picture, and the 
best served by Destiny, that History 
has ever known." 

"Plume of the Avnrons" by Ack-

ticularly of the Maori tribe, a myster-

"Highway Into Spain" by Auros-

of romantic Spain, and at the same 
time the simplicity of the life of the 
peasant class.

Af counter propaganda against the "Boulcourn for Pres-

MacStood, Boulcourn Campaign Manager, said in protest 
of the reports: 

"It was I, myself, that first

To All Seniors: — 

Interest in any of the numerous 
activities on the campus is a minus 
quantity. There are a few per ons 
who would like to see members of 
our campus community take a pro- 
gressive and aggressive policy instead 
of a lifeless, spineless policy such as 
has been manifest in collective act- 
ivities so far, This is nowhere more 
noticeable than in the present Sen- 
tor Class. The few who take any in- 
terest get no support from the class 
as a whole and are usually condemn- 
ed as trying to put something shady 
over on the vest of the class. If you 
want to just graduate this is all right, 
but if you want to amount to some- 
thing as a class, please give some 
support and a little of your valuable 
time to those who are using up quite 
v. lot of their time, which, by the way, 
is just as valuable as yours, in trying 
to make the class a real class and not 
just a group of lifeless individuals. 
Can't we make our graduation mean 
more than getting a sheepskin handed 
to us on June 11th? 

Harold D. Shriver. 

Greeks, they had a word for it." 


The meeting was called to order 
and it was resolved that there be no 
more meetings. It was moved, sec- 
onded, and passed that there bo no 
more meetings.

Reid Hall is under going some very little while 
extensive repairs. When it is finish- 
ed it is said that every girl will have 
a shower of her own. This must be 
true because we have seen the "plum- 
mer" over there every day this year. 

Very few students know that Wash- 
ington College had a student travel- 
ing thru Europe, incognito, last sum- 
mer. This student was no other than 
Wanze Laymond. For a translation 
of this name refer to German diction- 
ary). After having learned this I set 
out to interview him and this is woac 
he had to say for the press. "The 
uip across waj very uneventful ex- 
cept for the fac': that I wore the port- 
hole for a necklace for the greater 
I an or the trip." He was noi ready 
to quote hint-self as to the economic 
situation of Europe. 

There is a certain friendship on 
this campus budding into romance 
and to this promising romance we 
dedicate the following poem: 
Now Cattie has gone from pillow to 

Bo'. ni this romancej Navid will make 

the most. 
Everyone seems interested and tries 

to give a hand. 
But I sincerely hope they let him run 

his own band.

Now that the Sadler case has re- 
linquished the lime light, the case of 
March Beaver has attracted our at- 
tention. She is said to have resorted 
to horrids words in explaining the 
trays in the cafeteria. The Govern- 
ment decided that the crime was sim- 
ilar to that of Sadler and that the 
punishment should also be similar. 
Maybe this will teach the other girls 
a lesson or two or three. 

We read stories in the weeklies of 
substitutes being sent in for prize 
fighters but right on our own campus 
we have substiutes of a stranger na- 
ture. We notice Ronson sending in

It took us four years to find out 
that figures don't lie but liars figure. 

The two foremost statisticians of 
Reid Hall are Capa Gainba and Ab- 
ner Piraitis. They are considering 
the erection of a few additions in the 
vincity of Reid Hall. Whether these 
are to be used as headquarters, is not ' 
an established face. I don't doubt ; 
that these two stents can furnish ' 
you with all requested data, but the 
power behind the throne is a horse of 
another color.

WOMEN SEEK i*™* 4 " J E n GUN 



Mrs. H. W. Wylie Speaks At 

"It is suitable in a college that 
bears the name of Washington i 
have a discussion of equal lights 
said Mis. H. W. Wylie, Chairman of 
the Council of Women's Party of 
Washington, D. C, in her address be- 
fore the student body on the "History 
of the Equal Rights Movement" at the 
March 31 assembly. 

That the new economic order 
throughout the country has brought 
about changes that necessitate doing 
away with the old common law be- 
lief in man's superiority, was the text 
of Mrs. Wylie's speech. She also 
emphasised the slogan of the Wom- 
en's Party: "To secure equal oppor- 
tunities for men and women, and to 
do a service to the country." 

On the subject of protective labor 
legislation Mrs. Wylie said: "We are 
trying to reconcile the old ideas to 
the new needs when such legislation 
is passed. Protection should be ex- 
tended to individuals in industry. 
There should be no distinction 
shown between the sexes. 

"The profound changes in one life 
span prove to us that these laws, 
based on the old ideas, and discrim- 
inating against women, can be done 
away with." 

Miss M. F. Luers, of Washington, 
followed Mrs. Wylie on the platform. 
She stressed the appeal the Equal 
Rights Movement had for the youth 
of the country. 

Her speech was concluded with the 
announcement that, for an essay on 
"Equal Rights Amendments," two 
prizes of $500 and §200 would be

of publication for the 1932 PEGA

Ross and U. O. Coulbourn, Jr. 

The theme of the annual fittingly 
commemorates the one hundred and 
fiftieth anniversary of the college. 

The name of each senior will be 
stamped in gold letters on the cover 
of the book. Any other student 
wishing to have his name on his an-

ranging it with Mr. Coulbourn.

be offered to the high school students 
of Chestertown, Rock Hal], and Gal-

The rules governing the contests 
for the high school students have been 
published in the local papers. Col- 
lege students may find the rules post- 
ed on the bulletin board in William 
Smith Hall. 

The pageant written by the stu- 
dents of the college must concern thej 
visit of George Washington to Wash- 
ington College in May, 1784. Dur-i 
ing this visit Washington attended a I 
meeting of the Board of Visitors and 
Governors, and saw the play "Gusta-

honor by the students.

Si. Johns, Maryland, and Hopkins. 
The Maroon and Black will meel Hop-

will have his pupils play a different 
style from that which they used 
against Lafayette. Against the lat-

n very aggressive game, riding the

ever, Coach Eknitis does not believe 
that such a type of game would be 
most effective against Maryland's 
clever stiekmen. The Washington 
attack should function better than it 
did against St. Johns due to the ex- 
perience it has gained since then. 01-

American University Debating 

1'cnm travels by airplane, so we are 
n formed, 


If we understand the Constitution of the Student Govern- 
ment Association correctly, the .lection, for the various officers 
of student activities are completed the last Friday in May. 

We believe that this is not only poorly placed, but also con-, 
trarv to the usual custom in the majority of colleges and univer- 
sities Whether or not our date is in accordance with trie 
dates used by other institutions is of little importance to us, who 
have a purely local problem to worry about. However in he 
case of Id least two organizations-THE ELM and THE PEGA- 
SUS— we are certain that the moving up of the elections to the j 
first Friday in May. so they will be completed by the second 
Fridav, would be beneficial. In the instance of THk LLM , 
there should be tacked on to the election ruling the statement 
thai the newly elected Editor and Business Manager should 
lake full charge of the last edition. That edition would be, in 
a sense, a trial horse on which both the Editor and his cohort 
rould try out their own ideas; discover the difficulties peculiar 
to the publication of a college newspaper; and realize their 
own errors. They would also get a taste of responsibility and 
without going into tiresome details — the result would be a 
heller grade of journalism for the college in the following year. 
At the present time all this is impossible because the elections 
are held after the last page of THE ELM is "put to bed." 

As things stand now with THE PEGASUS under the pres- 
ent ruling, the newly elected men find that they must sign all 
their contracts immediately without any understanding of the 
mysterious ways of photographers, printers, and engravers; 
;;iid that they must retire to their respective homes before they 
have had a chance to work out their hazy plans with the en- 
graver and the printer, and with themselves. If the elections 
were to take place on the date we have offered, these fledgelings 
;il the game could see how copy, cuts, and photographs were 
handled in the editing of the book. The retiring Editor could 
explain what he had learned during his year of servitude, and 
could point out to them his errors. These men would have the 
time to sign good contracts; they might easily begin their 
edition of THE PEGASUS. And once again the result of this 
plan would be a better grade of work in what is an important 
part in representing the college to outsiders. 

For the other organizations we can speak with no authori- 
ty, but would it not be fine training and a fitting tribute to have 
fhe incoming officers preside over meetings before the Com- 
mencement rush has made them mere farces? 

There is also another side to our argument. It is a purely 
selfish one. Should not all seniors engaged in the various activ- 
ities be released from their burdens during and before the hec- 
tic, last days of their college life? Should they not be allowed I 
1o muse over these careless years and to meditate upon the 
catastrophe of graduation? And then, there are other inter- 
esting things tti do about that time of the year. 


We are not one to scoff at the beauty or the attraction of 
Chestertown; it is a fine place, and so is Washington College 
(founded 1782). But these days April is laughing her way 
across the fields and classes are futile and work is to be avoided. 

We are not quite sure where we must go but it must be 
somewhere. Now the Island of Capri often caught our fancy. 
One could go there and. like the Italian peasant in Ernest Hem- 
ingway's "The Sun Also Rises," lie on his back in the hot sun 
hold the goat skin full of red wine at an arm's length, and de- 
velop an unerring aim for one's mouth after a few minutes 
practice. Then Paris in the Spring is often spoken of. Or 
perhaps the hot sands of Palm Beach would suit you better. 

If we went on like this we would soon be completely de- 
moralized. We are here until June and we must in some fash- 
ion struggle along. All we can do is beg the professors for 
mercy or put our fate in the hands of the gods and not do a 
damn thing.

pearing in the "American Eagle."

might see fit. to report some of the 
uxire. scandal here.

As my colleague in the next col- 
umn cays, the advancing of the elec- 
tion dates is a fine thing for at least 
(he two organizations mentioned. 
However, he didn't mention that this 
year will show whether, like at the 
University of Maryland, fraternity 
politics will dominate the annual set- 
to or not. Perhaps THE ELM should 
campaign against the intrusion of the 
greek letters, but in a college of this 
ize it would be difficult for any Edi- 
tor to poke his editorial finger in the 
;iie without being accused of what he 
was trying to prevent. 

There is a lot of chatter about the

The big question that is bothering 
those who are intending to startle

in the pageant to be held? That is 
to say nothing of those who are wor-

, l7 ° .. ,i CLUBS PLAN CONCERT 

Western Maryland 


Ekaitis Has Coached Both 

Coach Ekaitis' Lacrosse players 
will play his former teammates this 
afternoon at Westminister when 
Washington College engages in its 
third state game of the season 
against Western Maryland College. 
The Maroon and Black will be pre- 
sented an opportunity to make up for 
losses to two of the "Big Three' in 
Maryland Lacrosse, St. John's, and 
the University of Maryland. 

The defeat that Western Mary- 
land gave to the Chestertown boys 
last year at Westminister is still fresh 
in their minds, and an entire reversal 
of score is their aim. 

Coach Ekaitis' plans to have his 
team play the type of game which has 
produced such good results in the 
last three contests, that aggressive 
game with the attack riding the op- 
posing defense all over the field. On 
the attack, a fast cutting game will 
be used. The local players are small 
but fast and it is thought that such 
cutting will produce better results 
against large but slower players, the 
type the Green Terrors will present 
on the defense. 

The Washington team will be 
weakened at the point position by the 
absence of J. Lawton Jones, who has 
been declared ineligible for inter* 
legiate competition for the rest of the 
present term. Jones has performed 
well and was just acquiring the nec- 
essary experience to make him a fine 
and dependable defense player. Mike 
Williams is scheduled to fill the va- 
cated position and this Chestertown 
product should make a very credit- 
able showing. Other than this there 
will be no other changes in the line- 
up. The attack consisting of Cham- 
bers, Williams, Giraitis, Karfgin, 
Robinson and Clark will remain in- 
tact and judging from practice scrim- 
mages this week will be ready to roll 
up a score. The defense composed 
of Pippin, Wingate, Gamber, Plum 
mer, Williams and Reinhold will be 
primed to frustrate the scoring ef- 
forts of the Terrors. 

Quartet And Glee Club 

The Girl's Glee Club, the Men's 
Glee Club, and the orchestra, of 
Washington College, will give a joint 
cert at William Smith Hall, on 
Thursday, May 19. The Girls' Glee 
Club will feature a scene in costume 
from the Gilbert and Sullivan Comic 
Opera, "Mikado." The Girls' Glee 
Club will be under the direction of 
Mrs. Cleveland S. Smith, the Men's 
Glee Club, Mr. Raymond Moffett, and 
the orchestra, Dr. Frederick G. Livin- 

The Double Mixed Quartet and the 
Girls' Glee Club will broadcast over 
WCAO, on Sunday, May 22, at 4 P. 
M., under Mrs. Smith's direction. 

The Men's Glee Club, of Washing- 
ton College, will broadcast over 
WFBR on May 3. Mr. Raymond 
Moffett, under whose direction it will 
be presented, will sing a solo number 
and the single quartet and the Men's 
Double Quartet will each have a num- 
ber, also. 

Albert W. Dowlir.g Wins 

College Pageant Prize 


Protest Against Donning 

Last Cotillion 
Held Last Night 

Walter A. Br; 


Walter A. Branford, of Nanticoke, 
Md., has been elected Class Orator by 
a committee of members from the 
present graduating class. His speech, 
which will have for its theme the ef- 
fect the one hundred and fifty years 
of tradition should have on Washing- 
ion College graduates, will be deliv- 
ered during the commencement day 
exercises to be held on June 11. 

Albert W. Dowling, of Rock Hall, 
was announced today as the winner 
of the Sesqui-centennial pageant con- 
test by the judges: Dr. Esther M. 
Dole, Margaret G. Brewer, dean of 
women, and Doris T. Bell, head of 
the pageant committee. 

The details of the winning paper 
will not be announced until a descrip- 
tion of it appears in "The Pegasus," 
but it will probably concern the visit 
of George Washington to the college 
in May, 1784. It was at that time 
that the first President heard the play 
of "Gustavus Vasa." It was also at 
that time that Dr. William Smith re- 
ferred to Washington as a man sim- 
ilar in character to Gustavus Vasa, 
the deliver of the Swedish people. It 
i:^ believed that Mr. Dowling has 
worked these events into his pageant.

College Plans Washington Bi-Centennial 

And College Sesqui-Lentenmal Celebrations 

Colonial Dances Will Be 
June Ball 

F e a t u : 

To bring back to the Washington 
College campus the color, the life, 
and some of the personages of the 
college's brilliant colonial period is 
the ultimate aim of the various com- 
mittees under the direction of Pres- 
ident Paul E. Titsworth, who is 
guiding the plans for the Sesqui-cen- 
tennial and Bicentennial Celebra- 
tions. The boom 'of the sunrise gun! 
on the morning of June 11 will offi- j 
cially begin the exercises — although j 
the June Ball to be held on the pre- ! 
vious evening is an integral part of; 
the celebration— and the last echo| 
of the sunset gun on the same day 
will mark the close. 

A special committee with Stephen 
R. Collins, chairman, and with Mrs. 
R. H. Rogers, Miss Doris T. Bell. 
Dean J- S. W. Jones, Harold D. 
Shriver, and Paul T. Pippin assist- 
ing are planning to open the June 
Ball with a series of colonial dances 

by specially drilled students. Fol- 
lowing this exhibition students or vis- 
itors representing the characters ofj 
President and Mrs. George Washing- J 
ton, Mr. and Mrs. Tench Tilghman, 
Mr. and Mrs. William Paca, and Dr. 
and Mrs. William Smith will be pre- 
sented to the guests at the Bali by 
President Paul E. Titsworth. 

All the guests are invited by the 
administration to wear the costumes 
of the late eighteenth century in 
order to preserve the spirit of the 
opening of the Ball. This is not, how- 
ever, necessary for admittance. 

After the fitting exercises during 
the raising of the colors are held, and 
the stages have been set on the cam- 
pus for the celebration, the one hun- 
dred and fiftieth class graduated 
from Washington College will begin 
its commencement program in a man- 
ner that as closely approximates the 
first commencement as is possible

Walter A. Branford, senior, was an- 
nounced winner of the twenty-five 
dollar prize offered by the Chester- 
town branch of the Women's Chris- 
tian Temperance Union to students of 
Washington College for the best es- 
say on: "Modern Science's Contribu 
tior to the Understanding of the Al- 
cohol Question." William McAlpine 
..icnards was given honorable men- 
tion. The paper will be entered ir 
...e national W". C. T. U. contest. 

The judges for the contest were: 
the Rev. E. A. Sexsmith, the Rev. 
Charles L. Atwater, and the Rev. Har- 
ry Wright. Mrs. F. G. Usilton, of 
JhesLertown, conducted the contest. 

Mr. Branford will read his prize 
paper before the county convention 
of the W. C. T. U. to be held in the 
Chestertown M. E. Church on Thurs- 
day evening, April 28. 

The prize was won last year by

pressed in n meeting of the male 
members of the four classes held in 
William Smith Hull < )n Thursday, 
Aju-il 21, that President Oliver E. 
Robinson discontinued nil plans to 
adopt such a ruling. 

A rule requiring all Freshmen to 
wear coats during the assembly hour 
— to be enforced next year — was 
practically unanimously endorsed 
with cheers and some catcalls. The 
■eaction to a ruling that all male 
members be required to wear coats 
luring the assembly period — to be en- 
forced this year — was indefinite, with 
half of the group opposed and half in 
favor of the ruling. 

President Robinson concluded the 
meeting with a warning against the

As though tired of old age, Wash-

niol Class Prom in the college gym- 
nasium Friday evening, April 22, 
with a luck of spirit (lmi even Hie St. 
Louis Blues could no) revive, It was 
the fifth and last dance held under 
(he auspices of the 1032 Washington 
College Cotillion Club. 

The orchestra, from the La Vale 
inn near Cumberland, Md., ami play- 
ing under the name of Robinson'a 
Orchestra, was received with silence 
by the crowd of approximately aev- 
enty I'ouples. 

The decorations which covered the 
roof of the dance floor with a tent 
of brilliant red crepe paper, ami 

drnped the windows in red and white 
gave a brilliant background for I he 
Senior affair which balnnced the 
drabness of the occasion. They wore 
in charge of James M. Parsons. He 
was Hoisted by John J. I.mUy, 
George H. Corddiy, Jr., John L. San-

ever do 
Nothing but that."

Discusses Law As Possible 

"Law as a Profession," was the 
subject of a vocational address given 
in Chapel Thursday by Mr. Albert D. 
Mackay. member of the class of 1909 
of Washington College, and now a 
prominent lawyer of Elkton, Md. 

In his talk, Mr. Mackay discussed 
the advantages and disadvantages of 
following the legal profession, and 
the various qualities required for an 
individual to be a success in this par- 
ticular field of human endeavor. 

Mr. Mackay is the second of a ser- 
ies of vocational speakers to be 
brought to the cillege by Dr. Fred- 
erick Livingood, head of the faculty 
committee on assembly speake: 

Selection of a suitable date for the 
spring elections is the problem that 

I faces the Student Council at their 
next meeting. The assembly period 
of May 7 is the tentative date set for 
the nominations, but selection of this 
time depends on the acceptance of 
this date by Dr. George Preston, 
member of the Mental Hygiene So- 
ciety, who is scheduled to address the 
students at that assembly. 

Even if this date is secured for the 
nominating and electing of the stu- 
dent officers, it will be necessary to 
hold another balloting day, it is be- 
lieved by President Oliver E. Robin- 
son, to fill completely the list of of- 
fices under the new system of bal- 
loting. Since the Student Council 
is planning to have the incoming of- 
ficers take their positions before the 
middle of May, it is expected that 
"The Pegasus" office may have to be 
turned into a voting booth to allow 

| the students to express their opin- 

ions on the entire ticket of candi- 

If this tiikes place, the results ..!' 
the balloting during the Thursday 
assembly period will be posted on the 
bulletin board in William Smith Hall 
as soon as the tallying is over. Those 
offices and candidates yet to be vot- 
ed for will be indicated and, on the 
next day, Friday, the students will 
go to "The Pegasus" office to file 
their ballots. Here Student Coun- 
cil members will check the voters ami 
tally the votes. The final result on 
each office will be printed in THE 
WASHINGTON ELM, which is sche- 
duled to appear the Saturday morn- 
ing following. 

The new policy of the Student 
Council — to install the incoming of- 
ficers early in the year — has been 
adopted by that body with the aim 
of acquainting the new men with 
their duties for the coming college

Continuing our campaign for an improved college news- 
paper, which was begun in the last edition by the suggestion 
I hat the incoming men edit (he linal number of this year's pap- 
er, we pass on to the editor of next year a style book for the 
editing of copy. In this, with the help of members of the staff, 
we have attempted to set a standard for the copy going into the 
paper and In set up a few arbritary rules concerning capitaliza- 
tion, punctuation, and style. In the creation of this book we 
are following the custom of all reputable publications. In fact, 
we have used the style book of "The Baltimore Sun" to guide us 
in our efforts. 

It is our firm conviction that THE ELM cannot be a force 
in moulding student opinion, nor can it carry conviction to its 
readers, until it improves technically and mechanically. In the 
representation of this college to outsiders the newspaper can be 
one of the most potent influences, and this step towards what 
we think is an improvement in the paper will unquestionably 
aid in advancing the better side of our college life. We pass it 
on as our small contribution to newspaper work in Washington 

The other great fault with the mode of conducting the pap- 
tr in this college is still to be explained ill these columns. Our 
opinion on it will appear in the next issue. 


With the advent of this warm spring weather we can im- 
agine, although we cannot atnte it as a fact, that the telephone 
in Middle Hall is having its share of use. The mystical num- 
bers — 263 — have probably been whispered, panted, or sighed 
into the ear of the operator times beyond count. 

That is as it should be. We are a firm believer, if not a de- 
votee, of the pleasures of co-education. We stand firmly for 
bigger and better telephones and we indorse any plan that tends 
towards comfort during long winded calls. We imagine that 
our fellow students, the denizens of Middle Hall, support us in 
our beliefs. 

If you men do believe in telephones, then may we whisper 
gentlely in your eager ears that for some time now Uncle Sam 
has curiously refused to take "slugs" in exchange for the cur- 
rency of the land? Equally as strange, the telephone company 
has upheld him in this practice. The conclusion to this inter- 
esting little problem is that very soon the boys will be able to 
keep all their "slugs" without having to lose them down the tel- 
ephone box. We recommend the solving of this little problem 
of how the boys can keep their "slugs" and the Hall can keep 
its phone to the Middle Hall Club. It would be a fine way to 
justify its existence — as all organizations should do — on the 


he tmditionnl Swarthmore idenl 
of athletics differs widely from the 
ordinary college standard. Instead 
of the usual "a winning team at all 
costs — except that of undesirable pub- 
ity" slogan, there has been incul- 
cated from the beginning the motto, 
athletics for all." — From "The 
Swarthmore Phoenix." 


The* "cove man" jin.bably was n 
iJd, meek husband. 
All the evidence indicates that his 
domestic status has been grossly mis- 
presented, Dr. John M. Cooper, of 
Catholic University told the Catholic 
Anthropological Conference nt its an- 
nual meeting here during the Easter 

There are no actual "cave men" 
left in the world, Dr. Cooper said, 
but among the most primitive peoples 
ixtaiit, who may represent the near- 
st approach to the primeval condi- 
ion of man, the status of women of- 
cn is nearly that of absolute equali- 
ty with the males. Dr. Cooper, how- 
!, gave little credence to the the- 
of a primeval matriarchy in 
eh woman was supreme. — From

We have asked for and received 
ggestions for "improving the Col- 
legian." A great number of the an- 
■s received were not to be taken 
at all seriously, but here are some of 
the suggestions more worthy of ac-

jokes." (Ed. Note: Is there such an

B. Have advance write-ups of the- 
atre concerts.

7. Run a six-page paper. 

8. Some anonymous person asked 
that we advocate changing the name 
ot the college to King William's Col- 

9. Do away with all politics 

10. Less intellectual bunk and 
more articles of entertainment. (He

11. More sports, current news, and 
less advertising.

Dr. Esther M. Dole delivered a lec- 
ture on "Egypt." in the Parish House

mids, and the Sphinx, the beauty of 
the Isia Capitals of the little temple 
of Denderah, the grandeur of the 
temple of Luxor, and also that of 
Karnak, with the twin row of Sphinx- 
es leading to it. She went on to por- 
tray the impressiveness of the 
Egyptian Dam, the biggest in the 
world, and the beauty of the Temple 
of Philae, now inundated by the Nile 
as the result of the building of the

Sports Notions 

By Phillip J. Wingale 


Overnight horse shoes has be- 
come a popular diversion at Washing- 
ton College and the clank of metal 
from the direction of the old gym- 
nasium is no novelty. The horse 
shoe fad started about a month ago 
when Louis Goldstein, a freshman, 
drove ■! couple of stakes out beside 
the tennis courts and proceeded to 
iako over all who challenged him. 
Incidentally, Goldstein claims hii 
county championship, which he won 
in the P. A. L. tournament in 1029. 

The sport has grown so popular 
that the college athletic authorities 
,uive set up a number of horse shoe 
courts in the vacant lot back of mid- 
dle hall. 

"1; there much 

"Hell, lad. Even 
are fixed," 





Coach George Ekaitis' stickmen 
meet the terrorless Green Terrors of 
Western Maryland today and the lo- 
cals expect once again to demonstrate 
the old adage of "the bigger they 
come the harder they fall." The 
Maroon and Black has been far out- 
weighed in every game played up to 
date, but size has been a matter of 
least importance to the hard-riding 
Wc Thing-tomans. Western Maryland 
will present a big defense, but Coach 
Ekaitis expects his charges to have 
a sufficient advantage over his form- 
er coi.ege mates in speed and stick 
work to take the decision. 

Joe Deckman, Maryland coach of 
defence and unanimous selection for 
Ail-American point last year, after 
watching the Maryland-Washington 
lacrosse game, declared the present 
Washington twelve to be by far the 
best coached stick combination that 
Washington has ever put on the field. 
Deckman was not the only Maryland- 
<•' impressed with the fight and abil- 
itq of the Maroon and Black, for 
-*<~WhX~>*** Willie Pugh. Ail-American center for 
the Terrapins, pronounced Charlie 
Clark one of the toughest men he had 
ever tangled with. 

Fritz Reinhold probably will not be 
the general choice for all-American 
goalie this year, because goal tenders 
on more successful teams will receive 
more publicity. However, discerning 
critics, who have seen the Washing- 
ton net-wizard in action realize thai- 
Fritz is a goal keeper par excellanee. 
Reinhold gave an exhibition in front 
of the act during the Maryland game 
that was equalled only by his punt- 
ing in the foot ball game with the 
Terrapins last fall. 

The announcement that Washing- 
ton will enter two relay teams in the 
Penn Relays has given an added in- 
centive to the local track stars who 
are taking daily workouts under 
Coach Kibler. Among the quarter 
nnlers that have shown much prom- 
ise are: Fleetwiod, Baseman, Chose, 
Dickerson and Bradley.

Representatives of Washington 
College on the cinder-path have been 
working out for the past three or 
four weeks on the local trails. It 
marks the renewal of this sport at 
Washington after a lapse of four 
years. Coach Kibler is coaching the 
locals and expects to develop a cred- 
itable team. 

Although a full schedule will not 
be attempted this year, one will be 
presented next season which will give 
the Maroon and Black runners a 
chance to show their wares after this 
year's organization and experience. 
Washington College will be repre- 
sented at the Penn Relays on the 
twenty-ninth and thirtieth of thii 
month and other meets with Susque- 
hanna and Galuadet have been ar- 
ranged. Among the candidates for 
track laurels are Chase, Beasman. 
Fleetwood, Dickerson, Bonwill, Hop- 
kins, Stark, Anthony, Blisard, Ward- 
Proudfoot, Bradley, Cooper, Lord : 
Squires, and Brougham. 

"New York University's lacrosse 
team got a wind fall that came like 
manna from heaven here yesterday 
afternoon and a smart little Wash- 
ington College twelve suffered a most 
peculiar and undeserved defeat." 

"The final score of 6 to 5 tells such 
a completely misleading story of 
what actually happened that it should 
be siricken from the records on the 
grounds that it is not pertinent." 

"New York University did not de- 
feat the Maroon and Black varsity 
twelve, didn't came within forty 
miles of doing so." 

The above par^praphs taken from 
Bill Wingate's writeup in "The Bal- 
timore News" tell the true account of 
the Washington— N. Y. U. lacrosse 
game played on Kibler field April 13. 
A misunderstanding as to the time 
remaining to be played after the 
Washington varsity had piled up a 5 
to 1 lead in the second half caused 
the locals to suffer defeat at the 
hands of a stick team that they out- 
classed in every department of play. 
After being told by the time keeper 
that there remained but 9 minutes to 
play, Coach Ekaitis, thinking to give 
his substitutes some experience, sent 
& complete second string mid- 
field. However, it then developed 
that the timekeeper had misinformed 
the Washington coach and there was 
n reality 21 minutes to play. 

It was then that the N. Y. U. team 
allied and overwhelmed the Maroon 
and Black second stringers to turn 
;ain defeat into a to 5 victory. 
The New Yorkers shot the winning 
goal thirty seconds before the final 
;un, as Capiain Karfgin and other 
.Vashirigton regulars, forbidden by 
he rules to return to the contest, sat 
lelplessly on the bench.

Washington Bi-Centennial Celebration To Take 

Place Afternoon Of Jane 11 



Local High SchooIsTo Play Big Part In 


without unduly prolonging the pro 
gram. There will he brief counter- 
parts of the eighteenth century Latin 
and French orations and the opening 
phrases of the commencement will 
probably be spoken in the scholarly 
tongue. The members of the grad- 
uation class will not wear colonial 
costumes. The ushers, made up of 
members of the Silver Pentagon 
chapter of the Blue Key fraternity, 
will wear, however, the bright blue 
and buff of the Continental Army. 

The main speaker of the day has 
not been determined, but he will, in 
all probability, be a prominent mem- 
ber of the diplomatic circle in Wash- 

Governor Albert C. Ritchie will al- 
so be among the notables that will 
that day address the graduating class 
and visitors- 
George Steptoe Washington, a 
collateral dependent of the first 
President, will be one of the guests 
of honor as was his forbeaver in May 

In the afternoon the celebration of 
the two hundredth anniversary of the 
birth of George Washington will be 
held on the campus with the college 
students and the residents of the sur- 
rounding towns participating. Ar- 
rangements have already been made 
for the broadcasting and filming of 

(Continued From Page 1) 



icession of floats portraying 
historic events will begin in Chester- 
town and proceed towards the college 
unveiling as it goes the Washington 
markers and the tablets commemor- 
ating historic spots. Prizes have 
been offered of ten dollars each for 
the most artistic float from among 
each of the following groups: one 
room schools, graded elementary 
schools, high schools, and the adult 
organizations of the county. The 
prizes will be offered separately to 
each group. There will be no com- 
petition between the groups. 

On the arrival of the procession at 
Washington College the dedication of 
he markers, that are to be placed 
it the historic spots throughout the 
state, will take place. The organiza- 
ion of the procession and the general 
arrangement for the proceedure of 
the afternoon program will be under 
the direction of J. Thomas Kibler, 
director of athletics at Washington 
College, and head of the local branch 
of the American Legion. 

The pageants, under the leadership 
of Miss Doris T. Bell, assistant dir- 
ector of Physical Education at Wash- 
ington College, will take place in ap- 
proximately the following manner: 


Rock Hall High School Pageant. 

Galena High School Pageant. 

Millington High School Pageant. 

Chestertown High School Pageant. 

Washington College Pageant. 


The pageants by the local high 
schools will take approximately fif- 
teen minutes each and will concern 
some event in their town's history in 
which Washington figures. The pag- 
eant offered by the students of the 
college will probably concern the vis- 
it of George Washington to the cam- 
ps in 17S4. Included in this will be 
a shortened version of the play, 
"Gustavus Vasa," which was pre- 
sented in its entirety by the students 
during Washington's visit in May, 
1784. Because of the inclusion of 
the play in the college pageant, this 
showing will take approximately for- 
ty-five minutes. 

The members of the local branch of 
the American Legion will serve as 
ushers for the occasion. 

All visitors, students, and local res- 
idents are invited to attend all the 
functions of the college during these 
days of gala celebration dressed in 
the colorful costumes of the period 
that is being commemorated.

nl To 

By Leonard Horwin 

Good morning, folks. 

We Introduce ourselves as your 
BpOCinl news announcers on the Olym- 
pic (James, bringing to you for the 
next few monthfl ink-resting side- 
lights on the "doings" as America 
prepares us athletic parly for the 

During the last days of July and 
the (lrnt fourteen days of August, the 
United States plays host to the world 
and (he games nf the Xth Olympiad, 
To date, (he record number of 40 na- 
tions have announced their intention 
to participate. Southern California, 
the "Playground of America," and 
the scene of the events, is prepnring 
a r]p-Toaring welcome. 


It is a matter of hifltoiical fact thai 
down in ancient Greece great battles 

| were called off when the moon reach- 
1 ed a certain position in (he heuvem 
during the summer solstice. The 
| homicide squads on both sides of the 
'■ bnltlefield would then adjourn and 
tramp off to Olympia on the west 
const of Greece to hold the games. 

In truth, they were not games, but 
athletic rites of purification dedicat- 
ed to Zeus, invisible ruler of heaven 
and earth. 

The serious business over, and the 
vtclors crowned with the proper herb, 
the athletes would return to the 
horse-play on the battlefield. 


"People think of the Olympic 
Gomes as a type of glorified track 

Bill Henry, famed sports writer 
and export, for twenty years a lend- 
ing correspondent on assignments to 
every part of the globe, now sports 
technical director of the Olympic 
Gnmes, was telling us of his work. 

"They are more than that. Besides 
including an international contest in 
almost every field of sport with sev- 
eral score nations represented, they 
nro in themselves a great gesture of 
international fellowship nnd a tradi- 
tion rooted in antiquity. 

"This," and the athletically built 
sportB mentor in the tan sports suit 
emphasized his words, "will probably 
bo the only time in the lives of per- 
pnn^ now living that the Karnes will 
bo held in America." 

These games had n deep symbolist 
i moss-covered antiquity. 

It seems fiUing tha( tho Olympic 
Gnmes, in which the physical perfec- 
(ion of the youth of that ancient day 
inspired eternal works of art, should 
have been revived by a youth in this 
modern day when the Games, with 
their intense competition, arc an in- 
valuable physical expression to men 
being dwarfed by the machine age. 


Although the Greeks had a word 
for him and more, the Roman Em- 
peror Theodosius finished both 
Greeks and games in the year 394 
A. D. 

And that was for nearly fifteen 
centuries until the year 1892. 

In thnt year the athletically-minded 
Frenchman, Baron Pierre de Couber- 
tin, then a youth of seventeen, pro- 
posed the revival of the games be- 
fore the French Sports Union. His 
dream was realized at Athens four 
years later — the city which once be- 
held the glory that was Greece in the 
days of the Olympiads, now witness- 
ing the first modern edition of the 
ancient games.

Hubert Ryan was elected to office I

of the 117 cast in the nominations, 
which were held in the morning of 
the election day. Joseph Dickerson, 
his closest contestant for the presi- 
dency was elected to the office of 
Vice-President on the first ballot. 
Richard Gamber, who was elected to 
the office of Secretary, followed his 
future colleagues to office on the 
first ballot with a total of 57 votes. 
Burdette Nuttle, the next highest 
candidate, received 29 votes. 

Phillip Wingate was elected Editor

Richards, the only other candidate 
with more than a handful of votes, 
tallied 18 in the counting. John Mc- 
Lain outscored Joseph Dickerson by 
22 votes to become Business Manager 
of THE ELM by the count of 91 to

Elizabeth M. Brice, of Betterton, 
Md., will play the part of Nellie Cur- 
tis in the celebration of the one hun- 
dred and fiftieth anniversary of the 
founding of Washington College, it 
was announced here today. 

Florence C. Rosin, of Golt, Md., 
will impersonate the character of Bet- 
ty Fairfax in the same celebration. 

Both of these historical characters 
played by Miss Brice and Miss Rosin, 
were the famous belles of the Colon- 
ial period. 

N o Action Taken This 


The resolutions of the Dean's Cab- 
inet, which implied the discontinu- 
ance of the Middle Hall and Golf 
Clubs, and the merging of the two 
literary societies into one with the 
name of Mt. Vernon, was received by 
the Student Council at its meeting 
on May 2 and upheld in part and oth- 
erwise referred to the groups con- 
cerned. No official reaction to their 
decisions has been received. 

It was stated by the Council that 
the golf course, now located on the 
college campus, will be situated on 
the new athletic field next year and 
golf will then come more naturally 
under control of the Athletic 
Association. In this way, the activi- 
ties of the Club will be taken over by 
the Association and the need for the 
Club will disappear. No action will 
be taken this year. The Club will 
continue to exist with the same of- 
ficers and the same functions. 

The Middle Hall Club will exist 
next year only if the members of 
Middle Hall care to organize inform- 
ally, for their present activities, the 
maintenance of the lounge and the 
purchasing of minor equipment, will 
be assumed by the college authori- 
ties. It was recommended by the 
Council that J. J. Johns, business 
manager of the college, assess the 
residents of Middle Hall one dollar 
for the purchasing of equipment and 
he maintenance of the lounge.

No Definite Promise 

President Hoover received at 
the White House Thursday, 
May 5, a delegation from 
Washington College asking him 
to make an address here on 
Commencement day, June 11. 

Mr. Hoover told the delega- 
tion, led by Dr. Paul E. Tits- 
worth, president of Washing- 
ton College, and Senator Phil- 
lins Lee Goldsborough, of 
Maryland, there was a strong 
possibility of a message from 
him in person at the date set. 

The delegation, who were 
courteously given an audience 
of about ten minutes, were told 
that present conditions made it 
almost impossible for the Pres- 
ident to leave the White House 
at any time. They were assur- 
ed, however, by Mr. Hoover 
that if it was at all possible, he 
would be present to address the 
Commencement day gathering. 

A member of the delegation 
stated that the group was 
pleased with the results of 
their audience.

The demure young bride, a trifle 
pale, her lips set in a tremulous smile, 
"lowly stepped down the long church 
aisle, clinging to the arm of her fath- 
er. As she reached the low platform 
before the altar her slippered foot 
brushed a potted flower, upsetting it. 
She looked at the spilled dirt grave- 
ly; and then raising her child-like 
eyes to the sedate face of the old 

minister, she said: "That's a h 

of a place to put a lily." — From "The 
Log," U. S. Naval Academy. 


This is our Swnn Son?. For one collegiate year what we 
had to say was determined only by ourselves. That is as much 
is anything is determined by ourselves, for here, as every- 
where, the great American game of "playing ball" has had a 
year-round inning. Now we have the world for a subject and 
the six pages of THE ELM as our only limit. It would be fool- 
ish for any one to sue us for libel, for we have not a red cent and 
we ate entirely square with the college. The possibilities are 

We ignore all this and, with a purely altruistic motive, go 
lo labor on THE ELM again. Here is the picture. A college 
activity — one of the few that could actually have life value — 
has been ninde an office for fraternities to bid for. Never has 
there been more than three men concerned with the work of 
editing, and each year the little sum which they have learned 
has gone with them olT the college campus. The same low 
grade of journalism is the only thing that, like the poor, has 
stayed with us. A fine medium for the English department, it 
has been ignored by them and left to the bad management of 
Hie students. 

Yes, we advocate faculty control of this paper. But that 
will mean repression of student opinion, you say. The answer 
for that is, the students have no opinion worth the type to print 
it. It is an axiom of the Editors that, if there was no cafeteria 
there would be no "Open Forum." If the English department 
had control, there would be, at least, an opportunity to train 
the students who were interested in the technique of writing. 

The college is ignoring a fine opportunity to make TH 
ELM what the college catalogue says it is and what it should 
be. A brief lecture course could be tacked on to the editing of 
the paper, the office could be fitted out with a few old typewrii- 
ris, and, with the authority he would have as a faculty member, 
the professor could bring about the production of a paper that 
would, aside from its other uses, give the students one dollar 
and fifty cents worth of newspaper. A student, subject to thej 
petty animosities and the cliques of collegiate life, cannot do I 
.his. If he is a noble young fellow when his term of office be- 
gins, he soon develops a "capitalistic" cyncism and the result is 
uot a better paper. 

All this means work for some person who is probably 
struggling right now with a heavy teaching load. But there is 
- njoyment in this business of getting out a college newspaper. 
Making news stories, laying out pages, seeing people actually 
i ead and talk about them ; all of that has its thrills for the group 
that is together behind it all. 

We leave these suggestions to the incoming Editors and to 
the administration and we hope that, when we send in our one 
fifty for a subscription , we will get back a better ELM than we 
produced. Good luck to you!

have roomed with, eaten with, and studied with this one hun- 
dred and fiftieth class for four years and we have a fair under- 
standing of most of them. Now, in our lifetime we have seen 
improved automobiles, airplanes, refrigerators, and garbage 
cans, but Lord help us, can we be "the latest, modern improve 
ment" in college graduates? If so. what was that first clan

THE result of exhaustive wind-tunnel tests of 
conventional trolley car models revealed that 
at speeds of 70 and 80 miles per hour, 70 per 
cent of the total power was consumed in over- 
coming air resistance. Streamlining saves approxi- 
mately 20 per cent of the power. 

When the Philadelphia and Western Railway 
Company decided to replace its cars with faster 
and more efficient equipment, it chose "electric 
bullets" — new streamlined cars — each powered 
by 4 G-E 100-hp. motors. The cars, constructed 
of aluminum alloy, with tapered noses and tails, 
are much lighter in weight and capable of greater 
operating efficiency. 

In developing transportation apparatus, college-trained General 
Electric engineers have conducted extensive tests to improve oper- 
ating conditions. On land, on sea, and in the air, to-day's equipment 
is safer, swifter, more dependable, and more comfortable.

against rather good teams, they have

'ftl years, during mo... 
of which time the prospects of ever 
attaining the end desired were dark, 
the Maryland Intercollegiate Rnskcl- 
Imll Association has at hist been farm- 
ed and basketball in the Free Stale 
.hereby advanced several pegs. The 
cage league with Washington, Mt. St. 
Mary's, Loyola, Hopkins and Western 
Maryland as members will till a long 
waited place in the sports circles "i 
the State. St. John's, at the present 
time a little stubborn because of u 
disagreement over eligibility rules, 
will in all probability be in the as- 
iociation before many seasons pass. 

There is some discussion about the 
trophy to be awarded the winner and 
some tnlk nf letting the trophy go 
permanently to the first club to win 
it throe times in succession. We 
feel that it would be far better to let 
the team which wins the cup three 
times, not necessarily in succession, 
retain it permanently. It will be al- 
most nn impossibility Tor one team to 
win the trophy three years running 
and as each year's winner would get 
its name engraved upon the cup it 
would soon be necessary to replace it 
for lack of engrnving space. 

We extend our congratulations and 
best wishes to the broad-viewed ath- 
letic authorities of the various col- 
leges for their willingness to start the 
lergue. It should mean a big thing 
for Maryland bnsketbnll.

Investigation Proves That 

Love It Does 

In the course of a short period of 
years a faculty member meets many 
students, noting scholastic aptitude, 
scholastic attainments, out of class 
activities, and in all probability 
makes some observations on the com- 
panions a student selects, whether 
they be of the same or of the oppos- 
ite sex. 

One of nature's laws, expressed in 
proverb form is, "Water tends to seek 
it's own level," and it is on the sug- 
gestion of the above proverb that this 
little study was made. The question 
can well be raised whether the col- 
lege man and college woman is at- 
tracted by a member of the opposite 
sex with a higher level of intelligence, 
the same level of intelligence, or a 
lower level of intelligence, or wheth- 
er there is an absolute disregard of 
intelligence, in common parlance 
"gray matter," in the college male's 
appeal to the co-ed or the co-ed's 
appeal to the college male. Any 
campus observer can cite cases of any 
one of the three instances mentioned, 
but the case cited may be an excep- 
tion to the general rule, hence opin- 
ions are likely only to be surmises. 
The reader should be warned in ad- 
vance that a study of the intelligences 
of campus couples may be as meager 
of results as the thesis of the aspir- 
ing doctorate candidate who wrote on 
the question, "Has the squid a nose?" 
only to come to the decision that the 
squid had no nose, which was infor- 
mation to some people in spite of a 
negative conclusion. 

First of all it is necessary to set up 
some criteria as to what constitutes 
a campus couple or a "case." That 
a young man and co-ed apparently 
paired off for a year period or longer 
was determined upon as a measure, 
hence any such couples on the Wash- 
ington College campus during the 
past six years, including the present 
year, may regard themselves as in- 
cluded in this little investigation. It 
is interesting to note that during the 
six year period several campus ro- 
mances have blossomed into married 
bliss, while some of the campus cases 
are married but not to each other. 

Examination of student records 
for the period of 1928 to 1932 fur- 
nished forty-five campus couples who 
met the above criteria, either by rea- 
son of length of time that they 
"kept company" or because of th 
dor of their attention and interest 
i each other, or both. Forty-five 
couples are too small a number to 
1 give results any great reliability, yet 
the results do indicate tendencies that 
might be revealed if a larger number 
of "cases" were available. Having 

arefully paired up eligible campus 
ouples and employed mathematical 
■omputations, the degree of relation- 
ship between matters of mind and 
heart were determined. Using the 
scientific method for determining cor- 
elation, it was found that the de- 
gree of relationship was a positive 
.26, a correlation that would be lab- 
eled as low. The highest degree of 
direct relationship that could be at- 
tained is 1 :00 and the lowest degree 
of relationship is .01. Had the re- 
sults been .60 or better the relation- 
ship would have been labeled high, 
if .40 to .60 it would have been lab- 
eled substantial, while the range of 
.20 to .40 labels the degree of rela- 
tionship low. Had the results been 
less than .20 the relationship would 
have been labeled very low. 

A search of the records between 
the years of 1926 and 1928 yielded 
an additional twenty-six couples, mak- 
ing a total ol seventy-one couples 
On figuring the degree of relation- 
ship for the total seventy-one couples 
the result dropped to a positive .21 

While the low degree of relation 
ship was somewhat disappointing, i 
must be admitted that the results do 
show a positive relationhip, and do 
indicate that levels of intelligence are 
a factor in determining the make-up 
of campus couples. Accumulation of 
additional student records and com- 
outations will probably not produce 
any substantial change in results. It 
might be an interesting study to fol- 
low campus couples, if they marry 
•"e another, to determine what ef- 
fect hanpy married life is dependent 
unon the possession of the same or 
closely related levels nf intelligence. 
If there is a relationship, it might be 
of value in knowing something about 
vour intended's I. Q. a" well as know 
i**g something about his family his- 
'ory, social status, and chances for 
"uccess. If on the other hand, we 
were to discover thet cmiples differ- 
ing widely in I. 0-'s live happier than 
•ho'-e whose I. Q.'s are closely relat- 
ed, then we might be forced to co"- 
c°'d tha f "Love is blind" and discard 
the level of intelligence as being a 
guide in matters of heart, proving 
that, maybe the intellect and emo- 
tions are but slightly related. 

The writer conceeds that similav- 
. ity or interests, social statu=. relig 
i ions, degree of education, and relat- 
ed factors are vital influences in the 
choice of a "campus friend" and a 
life mate, but raises the question a? 
;>. result of this study whether after 
ill water does not tend to seek its 
own level. 

Dazed and overwhelmed by their 
first glimpse of the range of human 
nowledge, the Sophomores were 
'taken on a Rat party" when Dr. 
Fred G. Livingood passed out the 
three-hour general culture test issued 
by the Carnegie Foundation for the 
Advancement of Teaching on May S- 
as followed the next day by anoth- 
three-hour mental inventory on 
the subjects of English and General 

The test is being used in a nation- 
al survey of the colleges and univer- 
sities by this Foundation. It will be 
Lised as an aid in determining admit- 
tance to the Junior cluss.

ML Vernon Plans Its 

Annaal Faculty Program 

The faculty of Washington College 
will enter! ain the students of Wash- 
ington College, not in the class roomt.' 
but in the Faculty Program of the 
Mt. Vernon Literary Society to be 
held on May 11, in William Smith 

The program will consist of: 

Reading of "The Congo" — Dr. 
Kathleen C. Carpenter. 

Violin selection — Dr. Fred G. Liv- 

Piano solo — Louis B. Russell. 

Reading — Frank Goodwin. 

"Athletics"— George L. Ekaitis 

(Continued From Page 1) 

'he Council referred the eonaoli- 

dliti f the Literary Societies to the 

members of the organisations to 
thrush out ai their respective meet- 
ings. It is believed thut the Selec- 
tion of the name for the society that 
ill come into existence will be the 
barrier to u speedy uniting of the 
two groups. In its resolution, the 
Cabinet suggested that the name of 
Mt. Vernon be kept in the annuls of 
the college for the sake of tradition. 

These recommendations were in 
eluded in letters sent to the heads of 
the organizations concerned. 

The resolutions of the Cabinet, in 
full, follow: 


I have been instructed by the 
Dean's Cabinet to present to you the 
following resolutions passed by thut 
body at its regular meeting on Thurs- 
day evening, April 28. 

(1). That the GOLF CLUB be 

ili i mt i mied and that ils activities 
In- assumed hy the Washington Col- 
lege Athletic Association! We re- 
commend thut the money contributed 

by the members and spent in the pur- 
chasing "f equipment be refunded to 
the members by the Athletic Associ- 

(2). That the two literary socie- 
ties now present til Washington Col- 
lege lie merged Into one organization, 
We also recommend that 11k- name uf 
CIETY be kept ns the name of the re- 
sulting oiganirntlon for the sake of 
the tradition of the college. 

(3). That the organization known 
as the MIDDLE HALL CLUB be n- 
bandoned although the room and the 
•quipment be kepi as a part of Mid- 
dlo Hall. We suggest that the 
inn tiling "f tin' present functions uf 
the Club should be done by the atl- 
mini: (iiilion of the college,

"Fencing to my mind, in an nrtiw- 
try almost mora than u sport. 

"Some of its masters, such us the 
70-yenr old Hungarinn, Itnlo Snntel- 
II, grand old man of fencing who In 
wild to posKCHH even yet (ho world's 
fastest dueling hand, hnve spent life- 
times In perfecting it." 

And H. G. Fern ud— Junky, ruddy 
faced fencing mentor of the L, A. A 
C. and one of the three members of 
the Director Technique managing th 

bouts of the Xth Olympiad— paused 

to wave his hand toward the piclurcs 
of those who had made good, look- 
ing down from the walla of his office. 
The elderly master of the cold 
steel art added laughingly — "Perhaps 
nlso becnuKe of the great technicality 
or the game, n high type of intelli- 
gence iB required. At any rate, tech- 
nicnllticH have made possible some 
very unsportsmanlike ncta and even 
unfair play, especially in the heated 
Olympic struggle." 

There are times when the ultimate 
end of sportsmanship will be lost 
sight of in the ultimate goal of vic- 
tory — a contestant denying the blow 
recoived when more thnn the human 
eye of a judge is needed to follow it 
an the lightning ntlnek is met hy the 
chip d'arret and the fighters go in- 
fo a corpn-o-eorps. 


Those, ancient sports-loverB who 
thronged the Olympic Stnde in the 
tiny vnlo at the foot of the hill of 
Cronus and offered up physical per- 
fection as a tribute to Zcnus, knew 
well the vnluo of strict ruleB and the 
temptation to unsportsmanlike acts. 

Before the huge altar to Zenus ris- 
ing in the center of the sacred Altis 
—the athlete, his fnther, brothers, 
and even gym teacher hnd to swear 
to commit no unethical nets, And 
with nil that, a whole row of bronze 
images were set up along the Altis 
nut of fines exacted for violation of 


The ancient Altis at the foot of the 
hill of Cronus is exchanged in 1932 
for a modern city with its never-end- 
ing line of habitations, pnrks, and 
plen^ure resorts spreading nt the foot 
of high-flung ranges and upon the 
mountains themselves — sprending 
from mountains to sea, from sea to 
desert, and from desert to orchard- 
covered plain. 

The rude Stnde is, in the case of 
f-ccing. exchnnged for the §300.000 
Olympic Fencing Pavilion, capable of 
housing several thousand onlookers, 
and flooded with licht through a glus* 
roof installed at a cost of $ 150.000. 
The Pavilion stands next door to the 
Olympic Stadium. 

A heavy wooden floor is beine con- 
tracted over a pnrt of the drill room 
nnd four tamped earth strips, 170 
feet 7 1-4 inches long nnd 10 feet 
wide, inserted in the floor as the duel- 
ing area. 

The events themselves, tnki'ij* place 
every day of the Ifi-dny Olympiad, 
arc divided into three clusse< — foils, 
dueling swords or epee, and sabres 
or the cut-nnil-thrust weapon. Each 
of the eighteen nations expected t" 
participate in August will be repre- 
sented by a 4-man team and three en- 
trees for the women's events, with no 
team events among the women — 
aboil- 125 fencers in all. 

Homer tells us in his Iliad of Poly- 
phemus, one-eyed ginnt and cannibal- 
iBtic non of Neptune, whom Ulysses 
outwitted. PolyphemuB thought 
there wasn't a hewer of logs or heav- 
er of weights in all the ancient world 
who could equal him as he lifted 
boulders off the coast of Sicily and 
threw them into the ocean far beli 
in a mad effort to crush Ulysses and 
his tiny fleet. 

Unless Homer was much less of a) 
exaggerntor than we suspect he Was, 
Polyphemus would lose a load of con. 
celt could he see Charles Rigoulet, 
the professional French, weight lift- 
er in the modern day — or Rudolph 
Ismnycr, the chubby German univer- 
sity lad, lift their 400 and 248 pound 
bar-bells respectively. 

And would Polyphemus' single eye 
pop could he see the 210-pound Ep/yp- 
tian heavyweight, Nossier, lift pound- 
ages which are expected to make the 
Olympic Auditorium, scene of the 
weight-lifting events in 1982, rock. 
In the massive Olympic Auditori- 
al, built by the Los Angeles Athle- 
tic Club nt n. cost of $500,000 on n 
site only n mile away from the quaint 
Mexican plaza where 151 years ago 
Felipe de Neve lifted the ling of im- 
perial Spain and declared La Ciudnd 
de Los Angeles founded, brawny men 
from a score of lunds will do anoth- 
kind of lifting in 1932. 
Polyphemus' step-children will per- 
form in an 18-foot ring lighted by six 
1500 candle-power lamps and sur- 
ounded by 10,400 spectators and a 
will of fresh air provided by eight 
largo exhaust fans nnd two intake 
fans. Preparations hnve been made 
to cover the floor of the ring, later 
to be used for the boxing and wrest- 
ling events, with n 3-inch extra layer 
of hnrdwood to withstand the pressure 
f the weight-lifting events on the 
evening of July 30 and 31 in the Xth 

"Weight-lifting, as it will be dem- 
onstrated to the Olympic spectator," 
says handsome Jere Kingsbury, as- 
sistant conch of the American weight- 
lifting teum, "will be a revelation to 
the sporting fraternity. 

"They will find that modern weight 
lifting, far from being the sport of 
pinno-inovers and human oxen, is a 
sport in which the finest type of I 
speed, co-ordination, and balance 
combined with strength are demand- 

Weight lifters are classified into B 
groups — featherweight, lightweight, 
middleweight, lightheavcyweight, and 
heavyweight; and they compete only 
with men in the same weight class. 
Each nation has two men in each cat- 
egory, making n ten-man team. Each. 
of the husky gentlemen get three 
urns at the following lifts — Two 
Hand- Military Press, Two Hands] 
Snn'ch, and Two Hands Clean and 
Jerk. His best efforts are added, and i 
he total obtained is his score. 


In Sparta, according to hoary lore, 
lifting was confined to pocltets when! 
the young aspirants could get away I 
wilh it. 

In Southern California, the Xth' 
Olympiad of 1932 will find men of, 
all the world imitating on a miniti- 
■.ui scale the forces of nature which

Provide Athletics 


At a meeting of the Athletic Asso- 
ciation of Washington College it was 
decided to carry both Lacrosse and 
Beseball as spring sports- during the' 
coming year. , , 

Baseball was dropped -two years; 
ago in order to make room for La- 
crosse. However, after the diamond 
game was discontinued, considerable 
agitation arose for its return and it 
was rumored that Baseball would re- 
place the old Indian gome at the col- 
lege. If track is continued at Wash- 
ington, there will be plenty opportun- 
ity for all those who desire a taste of 

The new athletic field is expected 
to be completed and in good shape 
by next spring and this field will 
probably be the practice grounds for 
the Lacrosse men, with home games 
being held in Kibler field as usual.

the accoutrements of the editorship 
turned over to Phillip Jerome Win- 
gate, newly elected Editor, by Irving

evening in THE ELM office. Editor 
Wingate will take command of the 
next issue. 

The accoutrements include 1 
poorly arranged file, 1 dictionary

1 Diamond Ginger Ale bottle (emp-

Stick Men Meet RULES GIVEN G. B. Raisin Wins Washington Bicentennial To Be Held 
Swarthmore Today FOR ELECTIONS Shore Declamation i June 11; Governor Ritchie To Speak 

Game Will Follow High COUNTIES ON SHORE Chestertown Boy Wins Over 

School Meet 

The Washington College Lacrosse 
team will engage Swarth move's re- 
presentatives of this old Indian game 
on Washington Field this afternoon. 
It will be the last game for the Shore- 
men this year and the second Home 
game of the season. There is every 
indication that Swarthmore will fall 
into defeat as Lafayette and Lehigh 
have done at the hands of Washing- 

The Maroon and Black were the 
victims of a bad trouncing at 
Hopkins last week, but a defeat at the 
hands of a team of Hopkin's calibre 
is no disgrace. Coach Ekaitis has 
h"»n priming his team all week for 
this battle a«d hopes that the injured 
members will be ready for action. 
riantain Karfgin who was given a 
broken nose at Lehigh is expected to 
again be in playing form. Al Dnhkins 
who has very capably filled Karfgin 's 
place in the last two games is nurs- 
ing a sprained ankle, received in the 
Hopkins game. Lawton Jones is ex- 
pected to have offset the effects of a 
badly cut eye ip time to give his best 

The Shoremen will play the same 
type of game as in previous con- 
tests. The attack will work the ball 
around a lot on the outsides. being 
sure of good openings bef< 
tempting to score. The attack also 
will ride the Swarthmore defe 
hard when they are clearing out. The 
probable lineup for today's game is 
Reinhold, goal; Plummer, point 
Jones, cover point; Pippin or Baker, 
first defense; Wingate, second de- 
fense; Gamber, third defense; Clark. 
center; Karfgin, third attack; Girai- 
tis, second attack; Robinson, first at- 
tack; Chambers, outhome ;J. Wil- 
liams, in home. 

Swarthmore has had a fairly suc- 
cessful season, but have lost to Hop- 
kins and St, John's by large scores. 
Washington, if they defeat this team, 
can call their season a success, and 
by far the most successful in the his- 
tory of the game at the Eastern 
Shore institution. 


Governor Appoints One 

Five Rivals 


The College Charter as 
by the Maryland Legislature in 1922 
provides for the appointment of 12 
Trustees by the Governor and the 
election of an equal number by the 
Alumni. Each of the nine counties 
on the Eastern Shore is entitled to 
two representatives on the Board, one 
appointed by the Governor and one 
elected by the Alumni; the remain- 
ing six, known as trustees at large, 
are apportioned among three dis- 
tricts, designated as follows: District 
No. 10, Baltimore City and vicinity, 
the Western Shore Counties, Wash- 
ington and the South; District No. 11, 
Philadelphia and vicinity, embracing 
Pennsylvania, Delaware and a part of 
New Jersey; District No. 12, New 
York and vicinity, and all sections not 
included in the preceding districts. 
The apportiinment of the trustees at 
large among these three districts, two 
in each, one appointed by the Gover- 
nor and one elected by the Alumni, 
will insure a wide distribution of 
representation. Any departure from 
this allocation is an entering wedge 
to the bringing about eventually of a 
most unsatisfactory condition, name- 
ly, the centralization of Board mem- 
bership in one city, or in one of the 
above districts. 

During the month of May the reg- 
ular biennial election of four Alumni

ing and repairs. The hotels and cot- 
tages are serving special shad meals. 
The merchants are preparing for a 
large holiday season and the entire 
upper bay resort is making ready for

Vote For Board 

Are you entitled to vote for Alumni 
Trustees? Read what the Charter 
Amendment has to say: "Any gradu- 
ate- of the College or of the Normal 
Department of Washington College 
and any student who left the College 
in good standing after having com 
pleted sufficient work to entitle him 
or her to a Sophomore or Senior Nor- 
mal rating shall be qualified to par- 
ticipate in the election by the Alumni 
of members of the Visitors and Gov- 
ernors of said College; provided, that 
no ex-student shall be entitled to par- 
ticipate in said election until after the 
class to which he or she belongs shall 
have been graduated." 


The Commencement Ball, Friday, 
June 10, at 9 P. M-, in the Gymnas- 
ium, is likely to attract the largest 
number of Visiting Alumni ever in 
attendance at a soda] function at the 
college. The Alumni, Faculty and 
Students are cooperating through a 
joint committee to make it the most 
colorful event of the sesqui-centen- 
nial celebration. 

Since hotel and boarding-house ac< 
commodations are very limited in 
Chestertown, it will be necessary to 
make reservations for entertainment 
over Friday night at least a week or 
ten days in advance. If the request 
for accommodations is received by the 
Secretary early enough, he will do his 
best to have the visitors comfortably 
placed at a hotel, boarding-house, or 
in a private home.

The celebration of the 200th anniversary of the birth of 
George Washington by the only college to bear his name with 
his express consent, coincident with the celebration of its own 
IBOth anniversary by the same college promises to be one of the 
most outstanding events in the state during this year. This 
celebration should ideally illustrate the motto of the Eastern 
Shore's only institution of higher learning, which is, modern ef- 
ficiency backed by years of honorable tradition. Every effort 
will be made to give a colonial air to historic old Chestertown 
and several of the foremost men of the present day will be in 
attendance to speak in honor of George Washington and the 
college that bears his name. 

This celebration cannot tail to have great significance for 
the entire state and particularly the Eastern Shore

The decision of the board of athletics of Washington Col- 
lege to continue Lacrosse as a major sport at the College re- 
flects the real sentiment of the student body. Furthermore, 
this action on the part of the athletic board met with the ap- 
proval and desires of many outsiders who are interested in the 
future of lacrosse at the only college on the Eastern Shore. 

Indeed this action by the college authorities would seem 
to be a very wise and far-sighted one. Lacrosse is certainly 
the coming college sport, if indeed it can not be said to have al- 
ready arrived at its place in the sun. This old Indian game is 
the big spring sport for many Eastern Colleges at present. The 
publicity that it will receive from the coming Olympic games 
should cause the spread of the game among schools and col- 
leges to be even more rapid and sensational than it has been in 
the last few years. It is hard to see how lacrosse can fail to do 
other than that which is predicted for it by its backets for it is 
justly called "the fastest game on two feet, with the dash of 
basketball and the crash of football." 

Washington College is ideally situated to benefit from the 
spread in the popularity of lacrosse. The State of Maryland is 
the acknowledged center of lacrosse of both intercollegiate am 
scholastic variety. There are more than five hundred school 
boys playing the game in this state alone and consequently the 
finding of good material for the stick game should be a simple 
problem for Washington. This available material, coupled 
with the brand of coaching Washington is now in line to receive 
should soon advance the Maroon and Black to a leading posi- 
tion in lacrosse. r

broadcasting hookup is practically assured. Thus Washing- 
ton College, the Eastern Shore and the State of Maryland, will 
be brought in contact, with the entire nation on June 11. 

Washington College is ideally situated and conditioned to 
do honor to the father of our nation. It's location in Chester- 
town, so intimately connected with General Washington's activ- 
ities in Maryland gives it another advantage to be added to the 
one relating to Washington's activities in the founding of the I 
college. Tradition and culture have been blended with mot' 
emism at Washington College in such a manner as to make it 
very worthy of the honor and aid bestowed upon it by the 
greatest of Americans.

During the past few years the ad- 
ministration of Washington College 
has gTeiitly improved the living fa- 
cilities of the students; dormitories 
have been rejuvenated, lounge rooms 
quipped and a more efficient janitor- 
ial system maintained. 

Despite all of this one small im- 
lortant detail has been overlooked. 
Washington College dormitories are 
vithout drinking fountains. Perhaps 
his statement means nothing to most 
■f us as we are all aware of the fact. 
Why should we discuss this appar- 
ently trivial matter. Simply this — 
.udents are forced to drink from 
faucets and whether or not a glass is 
used this is not a sanitary condition. 
The lavatories are used by dozens of 
tudents every day, soap suds and 
ooth paste suds cast from tooth 
brushes are dried upon the faucets 
and often trickle down over the noz- 

One has only to get a drink to de- 
fect the various brands of tooth 
paste being used by students. Do 
you like water flavored with tooth 
paste, soap suds and what not? I 

Perhaps all this sounds a bit "old 
maidish" but each year we are forced 
to attend one or two health talks in 
chapel, Freshmen must take the 
course in Hygiene and yet, due to the 
lack of proper facilities, dormatory 
students must continue an unsanitary

A number of Washington grads go 
out into the world as high school tea-

are called upon to coach high school

interest in athletics and find coaching 
a terrible burden instead of a pleas- 

Why can't a course in coaching be

Agee Favored 
To Win 

Saturday, May 28, will be a re., 
letter day in the history of athletics 
on the Eastern Shore. On that day 
the much heralded tryout to pick a 
marathon runner to represent the 
United States in the coming Olympic 
frames will be held at Salisbury and 
more than 200 runners will be on 
hand to show their wares. This try- 
out is one of the three held by the 
American Olympic Committee to pick 
three men to cany the red, white and 
blue this summer at Los Angeles. 
One of these has already been held 
at Boston and the third will be held 
June 17, in Los Angeles. 

The course over which the inara- 
thoners from this section will run, 
s'yptche^ over a distance that starts 
a few miles outside of Cambridge 
: i d ends in the center of Salisbury, 
Due to the levelness of the ground, 
this course will be ideal for the mer 
competing. William Agee, of Balti- 
more, internationally known mara- 
thon runner is, considered by the ex- 
perts as the man most likely to take 
first place. Agee has been quoted a. 
expecting to set a new all time rec 
ord for this famous run and declare 
this course to be ideal for a record 
breaking attempt. 

The Olympic Committee will 
award badges to all those who finis! 
the distance. Independent, of the 
awards of the Olympic Associatioi 
the following prizes will be given 
A silver loving cup for the first Eas 
tern Shore runner to finish, given b.

Mr. Wesley May. Chinese student 
at Johns Hopkins University, ad- 
dressed n combined audience of the 
"Y" Clubs Thursday evening on the 
world-interested Siuo-Jnpanese af- 
fair. After showing the historical re- 
lationship of the two countries Mr. 
May pointed out that possession of 
Manchuria, cause of the trouble, is 
aimed nt by ovei-popnlaletl Japan for 
colonization purposes and for the 
richness of ifs national resources. He 
further explained that as pretences 
Japan involved the question of own- 
ership and rights of the Eastern 
China R. R. and of dual Korean cit- 
izonBhip, an added menace is the do- 
ire nf a military clique, which has 
built up Japanese nationalism to 
iruve its strength and power. Mr. 
May concluded that as depression in 
America concerns ull nations, ns 
England's suspension of the gold 
standard effects international con- 
ference, so the difficulty of two states 
; far off and almost unknown to us, is 
ihe problem of the entire world. 

Al the close of the meeting, Mr. 
May offered a most unique musical 
presentation; the playing of several 
Chinese folk songs and popular songs 
with a violin bow and a saw. 

Mr. Harries, President of the Y.

conducted the meeting.

Hopkins Defeats 
Washington 12 - G 

Blue Jay Attack Too Power- 
ful For Locals 

Johns Hopkins, of Baltimore, con- 
tinued to show superiority over col- 
lege foes in Lacrosse last Saturday, 
May 14, when they handed Washing- 
ton College a 12 to setback. The 
game, played on Homewood field was 
a hard-contested affair in which in- 
juries on both teams were numerous. 
Lawton Jones, point for the Eastern 
Shoremen received a nasty cut over 
his eye and nose which necessitated 
his being removed from the game. Al 
Dobkina also was not able to continue 
playirg when his ankle was badly 

The Blue Jays of Hopkins started 
off fast, scoring twice within the first 
five minutes Hopkins' second string- 
ers then took the field and proved to 
be equal to the regulars in playing 
ability. Led by Boots Ives who waa 
afterwards removed after having re- 
ceived a face injury, they scored at 
more or less regular intervals until 
the game was ended. The score at 
the half was to 0. 

Coach Ekaitis' men were unable to 
check a fast and tricky Hopkins' at- 
tack, but exhibited fine spirit and 
fight. Goal keeper Fritz Reinhold 
made many fine stops for Washington 
during both periods of the game. 

During the second half Washing- 
on players played better lacrosse but 
bad six goals scored against them, 
making the final score 12 to 0.

For a 35,000 Mile Trip Are Being Made 

Plans for a 35,000 mile trip around 
the world by more than 600 Ameri- 
can college students, to sail from 
New York in October and return in 
May, and to be joined enroute by 
students from England, Germany, 
Norway and Italy, are being made by 
a group of nationally known leaders 
and by men and women prominent in 
the social, educational and business 
life of this and other States, it was 
learned today. 

Senators Arthur Capper of Kan- 
sas and Royal S. Copeland of New 
York, Secretary of Labor William N. 
Doak, Mrs. Ruth Bryan Owen, Mrs. 
Carrie Chapman Catt, Henry J. Al- 
len, former Governor and Senator 
from Kansas, and Mrs. Allen, togeth- 
er with others well known here are 
included among the patrons of the 
movement, which is designed to 
broaden the outlook of American un- 
iversity men and women and give 
them a first-hand knowledge of for- 
eign peoples, places and conditions, 
without loss of time in their regular 
college work. 

A trans-Atlantic ocean liner, equip- 
ped with study halls, lecture rooms, 
science laboratories, auditorium, lib- 
rary, gymnasium and swimming pool, 
and chartered for the exclusive use 
of the "American Floating Universi- 
ty," will serve as home and campus 
for the students during the eight 
months, or two college semesters 
spent on the world tour. Forty- 
three countries, sixty-one ports and 
100 additional places of international 
significance will be visited and stud- 

The University World Tour will be 
under the direction of a board of 
trustees of which Dr. Stanley P. 
Woodard of New York City is chair- 
man, and which includes Charles K. 
Cooper, treasurer of the Santa Fe 
Railway, Dr. Charles F. Thwing, 
president-emeritus of Western Re- 
serve University, Dr. John L. Merrill, 
president of All America Cables, and 
Dr. James E. Lough, firmer dean and 
director of extra-mural activities at 

New York University. Headquart- 
ters have been established at 6U 
Fifth Avenue, New York City. 

A faculty of fifty-five professors 
and instructors, most of whom will 
be on sabbatical leave from American 
colleges, is now being assembled by 
Dr. Lough, under the direction of the 
board. Classes corresponding to 
those in the usual college curriculm 
will be held regularly at sea, supple 
mented by field trips in the various 
countries visited. 

The students will be selected for 
the tour on the basis of character and 
scholastic standing, with a quota as- 
signed to each State in proportion to 
the number of college students resi- 
dent in the State. Because of the in- 
'er^ational aspect of the movement 
and the interest shown by foreign 
Governments and university groups, 
a special effort will be made to have 
the student body represent the best 
in American college life, it is said. 
Patrons and patronesses are now be- 
ing chosen here and in other States to 
aid in making these selections. 

The quota allotment allaws for 85 
students from the Pacific Coast 
States; 95 from the Western States; 
115 from the Middle West; 100 from 
the South; 125 from New York and 
the Middle Atlantic States; and 100 
from New England. 

Some men from this section inter- 
ested in the movement are listed be- 


Joseph H. Apple, Ph. D., LL. D., 
President of Hood College, is a mem- 
ber of the Faculty Advisory Board. 

Charles G. Maphis, Ph. D., LL. D., 
Dean of the University of Virginia 
<i a member of the Feculty Advisiry

Floyd T. Reynolds, M. A., former- 
ly of the Department of -English at

Harvard, coached by Bobby Pool, 
former St. John's player, has shown 
the greatest improvement over 1931 
of any lacrosse team in the country. 
The Crimson, which forced Nevy to 
the limit last Saturday, promises to 
become a real factor in the sick game. 

Virginia, despite rumors that it 
would give up lacrosse, has no such 
intention. The Cavaliers had only 
two games this year, both in April, 
but the stickmen are so interested 
that they still are keeping up their 
practice sessions.

With the opening of the 1932. 
1933 scholastic year, Washington 
College finds its halls filled with a 
greater number of students than 
have ever before presented them- 
selves at the institution. Records in 
the Registrar's office show that, to 
date, two hundred and eighty stu- 
dents have registered and are attend- 
ing class. There are one hundred 
and ninety upperclassmen and ninety 
members of the freshman class. The 
latter group have a somewhat larg- 
er percentage of women than has us- 
ually been the case, and a corres- 
pondingly smaller percentage of men. 
The class of 1936 shows a roster of 
thirty-five women and fifty-five men. 
Their names and residences are as

Washington College suffered 
of its major losses in a century when 
on July 10, 19yy, a great teacher, a 
wise counsellor, a talented pi ifessor, 
a brilliant scholar and a friendly man, 
Dr. Thomas Howard Fowler, died in 
Baltimore, Maryland, of a cerebral 
hemorrhage, at the age of 57 years. 
Dr. Fowler was born on January 
21, 1875, and has been a life-long 
resident of Chestertown, Md. He en- 
tered Washington College in Sep- 
tember, 1893, and was graduated 
with the A. B. degree in June, 1897. 
During the following year he did 
graduate work in Modern Languages 
at his Alma Mater, in conjunction 
with an instructorship there. From 
1898-1900 he taught at Homer Mili- 
tary School, Oxford, S. C. Follow- 
ing his sojourn there, he was an in- 
structor at Williams College, Mass., 
for one year. Severing his connec- 
tions with Williams, Dr. Fowler en- 
rolled in the Graduate School of 
Johns Hopkins in 1902, and was 
awarded the Ph. D. Degree three 
years later. For the nevt twenty- 
two years he was Professor of Ger- 
man at Wells College, in New York 
State, when, in 1927, poor health nec- 
essitated his resignation. 

Upon recovery from his illness, Dr. 
Fowler accepted the Professorship 
of German at Washington College, 
and at the time of his death was head 
of the Department of Modern Lang- 

Many of Dr. Fowler's summers 
were spent in study and travel 
abroad; he received academic credit 
from the University of Berlin and 
the University of Munich. 

His works and his friends render 
his memory immortal.

Dr. F. W. Truscott 
New Professor 

Dr. Frederick Wilson Tru^ott, of 
Shippensburg, Pa., and formerly 
Wilson College, Chambersburg, Pa., 
recently assumed the positions a; 
Chief of the Modern Language De- 
par'ment and Professor of Germat 
at Washington College to fill the va- 
cancies occasioned by the de^th of 
Dr. T. H. Fowler. 

Dr. Truscott received his A. B. de- 
gree from the University of Indiana, 
and later was awarded the A. M. de- 
gree from the same institution. From 
Harvard, he won his doctorate as 
well as another A. M. signification. 
He was a scholar in Germanic philol- 
ogy and German literature at the Un- 
iversity of Berlin, thus much of his 
study of German has been with the 
source material. 

Professor Truscott began his car- 
eer as an educator as an instructor 
: n German at his Alma Mater. Thence 
he was Professor of Germanic lang- 
uages at the University of West 
Virgjpja, which title he held for twen- 
■ y-six years. In the eight years pre 
ceeding his coming to Washington 
he was Professor of German at Wil 
son College, Chambersburg, Pa. 

Dr. Truseott's abilities are not few 
as evidenced by the versality of 1 1 i - 
achievements. He is joint translatoi 
of Laplace's Philosophical Essays on 
Probabilities (1902); the editor of 
Wildenbruch's Kinderthraenen, with 
notes and vocabulary, and joint au- 
thor of Elementary German Compo- 
sition (1914). He is also author of 
German in the High Schools of West 
In 1912, Dr. 
nber of the 
Military Intelligence Division, Gen- 
eral Staff, U. S. A., with the rank of 
a Firs* Lieutenant. He subsequent- j 
ly was promoted to Captain and 
holds that office in the Officers Re- 
serve Corps today. 

A member of the Phi Beta Kappa 
and the Phi Kappa Psi, Dr. Truscott 
also belongr to the Harvard Club 
(Phila.) and to the Modem Langu- 
age Association of America. He is 
given prominent mention in Who's 
Vho in America. 

Dr. Paul E. Titsworth, president of 
Washington College, spent the major- 
ity of the past summer touring vari- 
ous parts of the United StiLi^s. The 
pre si dent's trips, which totaled 
slightly over thirteen thousand miles 
in distance, took him through the 
heart of the Middle West, the North- 
west, the South, and the Northern 
part of the country. Dr. Titsworth 
visited Chicago, Seattle, Snn Fran- 
cisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Chapel 
Hill, North Carolina, Glacier Park, 
The Grand Canyon, The Thousand fe- 
nds and other places of 
portance and interest. 

On June 13, shortly after the 
joint celebration of Wasliingti 
Bicentennial and the 150th Anni- 
sary of the founding of Washington 
College held on the college can pu . 
Dr. Titsworth, accompanied by Mrs, 
Titsworth, left Chestertown on a trip 
through the west. The president ai d 
his wife went by way of Chicago, 
stopping there four days to visit 
friends. Their next main stop was 
at Glacier Park, where Dr. Titsworth 
had been invited to attend the dedi- 
cation ceremonies of Glacier Nation- 
al Park. The president declared this 
section to be one of the most beauti- 
ful in the entire country. Dr. and 
Mrs. Titsworth next continued on to 
Seattle, Washington, where Dr. Tits- 
worth, who is governor of 
the 34th division of the rotary inter- 
national, attended a rotary confer- 
In Seattle, Dr. Titsworth met 
Mr. Edwin Freeney, who graduated 
from Washington College in 1931. 

Dr. Titsworth returned to Chester- 
town around the middle of July, and 
later in the summer visited The 
Thousand Islands. The head 
Washington College also visited 
University of North Carolina, 
Chapel Hill, where his daughter Ele- 
anor of the class of '32, has entered 
the library department. 

The president stated that the re- 
mainder of his busy summer was 
spent interviewing prospective stu- 
dents of the eollege; he expressed 
satisfaction with the enrollment this 
year, which is the largest in the his- 
tory of Washington College. 

Dr. Titsworth visited a large num- 
bec of colleges and universitic dur- 
ing the summer. The complete list 
of the schools inspected by the pres- 
ident of Washington College is as fol- 
lows: U. of Chicago, U. of Minneso- 
ta, U. of Washington, U. of Califor- 
nia, U. of Southern California, U. of 
Colorado, U. of Denver, Coloradi 
State College, U. of Kansas, Wabash 
College, Whittier College, and Scripps 
College for Women.

Herrera, Wingate, Given 
Senior Scholarships 

At the regular meeting of the 
Washington College faculty held 
Sept. 19, Miss Ethel Herrera and 
Phillip J. Wingate were awarded the 
Visitors and Governors scholar? hips 
for one senior woman and one senior 
man, respectively. Each of these 
scholarships is worth S125 to the re- 

Fritz Reinhold will be the mainstay 
i i' the Washington defense with his 
very (rruely and excellent punting. It 
was this small but mighty athlete of 
the Shore institute who proved such 
P. menance to Maryland and nearly 
brought about a very great upset last 
year. Reinhold looms best under 
pressure with his kicking and also is 
unite adept as a ball carrier, though 
too light, for continuous '"ting „f the 

Washington's line-up will consist 
of players who performed last year 

except at the center post. MacDon- 
Id and Skipinski, two fine frosh 
prospects are battling along with 
Harries, letter man for the pivot 

Maryland's lineup, as stated before 
wil! consist largely of new comers to 
varsity football at the Old Line Uni- 
versity. However, the combination 
of Popplcman and Woods, Maryland's 
marvelous ball toting and blocking 
airangement, will be back shining in 
all its glory.

SATURDAY, SEPT. 24, 1932 


Dr. Howell said the other night that, even more than i 
course in unified science or unified mathematics, Washington 

College ids a course in unified school spirit. The head of 

I he eeon Ics department stated that the present school spirit 

is not even a decent skeleton of the Washington College spirit 
oi eighl or nine years ago. Dr. Howell said he believed that 
Old Washington was losing something vital in this decline in 
unity and pep at the college. He said that this decline has 

I ,i gradual but nevertheless certain and definite. We have 

in, in ed it even in the last three years. 

Something must be done to alter this disastrous condition 
of affairs thai is settling about Washington College. We know 
that this may sound like harping on a worn out subject but con- 
ditions leave no other way open. We know that organized 
cheering and other demonstrations of school pep and unity 
have been decried even in print recently at this college but 
such things are lamentable errors on the part of their authors. 

it serins I tint the majority of Washington College students 
are either ioo lazy or think themselves too sophisticated to give 
outward demonstrations of enthusiasm, Some of them seem to 
think it looks foolish to yell for their teams. It does look fool- 
ish for one or two persons to try to give a college cheer. But it 
is far from foolish for the entire student body to cheer its teams 
from whistle to whistle and then some more. 

Organized cheering unconsciously leads to better school 
spirit and better school spirit makes like at the college more in- 
teresting. On these grounds we advocate cheer practices for 
freshmen and upper classmen alike — plenty of them. The 
students may kick at first but in the end they will like it. 

I, el's show Dr. Howell and others who have been regretful- 
ly watching spirit and pep go from bad to worse, that Wash- 
inglnn I nil,',.,, isn't developing into :i seminary 



Greek Letter 

With the opening of eflth .school 
year the mjojccI of freshmen disci- 
pline arisen nnd ia constancy under 
rJIscilfll inn. No matter how well a 
freshman in treated he continues to 
believe he is being mistreated; no 
matter bow well he behaves some up- 
|n ■!■ cldSStnen are sure to think he is 
still too fresh, 

The old fashioned brutal board 
f, li in- m is bt-'ing gradually eiimi 
imted nnd today freshmen are quiet- 
ly and usually effectively and efnei- 
orttly disciplined by the Vigilance 
Committee. The new plan is much 
more satisfactory than the old. Yet 
i\ certain element of unfairness ex- 
ist;; in individual contact between up- 
per classmen and freshmen. 

Have you ever noticed that: the 
Hats who receive the worst treat- 
ment arc often those who need it 
leasL; that upper classmen when try- 
ing to make a clown of a freshman 
usually choose one whose wits are al- 
ready well scattered by his having 
been thrown into a new environment; 
Jiat the cool sell -possessed big Rat 
can in;. ill; upper classmen and break 
rules without ever been called to ac- 
count for it while some humble, 
i riglitened kid is punished for the 
slightest ntisdeamenar. 

At the initial Rat Party my atten- 
tion was called to the fact that the 
freshmen group grew smaller and 
.mallei*. Occasionally I noticed some 
Soph quietly ushers some freshman 
o the door of the gymnasium and 
dismiss him. When the time arriv- 
ed for the "How Dry I Am" shower 
only a small group of Rats were pres- 

I can remember when Rats were 
punished for handshaking upper- 
elass-men but now it seems that up- 
per-classmen handshake the most 
promising Rats. It would be a good 
iden to treat Rats according to their 
actions and not according to their 
uiOtion in life or on the campus. 

When trying to take the ego out 
}f a Rat choose one who has some 
ego. Despite the foregoing criti- 
cisms, conditions at present seem 
better than during any of the prev- 
ious four years and both Rats and 
upper-classmen have less reason for

A prominent Baltimorean who lived the early part of his 
life on the Eastern Shore of Maryland recently stated that this 
same Eastern Shore was in at least one respect the most re- 
markable section in the country. He stated that depressions 
affected the ordinary working people of the Eastern Shore less 
disastrously than they affect similar people of other sections. 
He continued to say that no matter how bad conditions got it 
was very hard to actually starve people on the Eastern Shore 
of Maryland as it has been done elsewhere. His reasons for 
this fact seemed to be ironclad. 

While the Eastern Shore has no single predominant indus- 
try it has grouped a remarkably large number of them together 
in a comparatively small area. Hence if conditions put one in- 
dustry on the rocks, the Eastern Shoremen can turn to another. 
The Shore is not preeminently a manufacturing section, and 
most of its factory work is concerned with the production of 
food stuffs, canned goods, etc. Consequently this manufactur- 
ing is not likely to lose its market. Furthermore, the Chesa- 
peake Bay offers all sorts of sea food and supplies work for 
thousands. The agricultural sections of the Shore can grow 
all of the stable farm products of this country and many that 
are restricted to particular sections of the country. 

We mention this fact to console and relieve those who have 
financial worries, with the thought that though the wolf may 
be at the door, he is not likely to go through it so long as they 
remain on the Maryland Eastern Shore.

Jas. S. Kreeger, Jr., 
Wins Golfing Cup 

Fights Way Through Kent 


Foot Ball 

James Kreeger, town student and 
member of the Freshman Class, is the 
newly crowned golf champion of the 
Chester River Yacht a d Country 
Club of Chestertown. In the annual 
tournament, held during the week- 
end of Sept. 5th and sponsored by 
Mr. W. J. Stengel- under the auspices 
of the Country Club, young Kreeger 
fought his way jmong a large field 
of older and more experienced golf- 
ers to reach the finals and then win 
the championship. 

Kreeger was paired with Col. Hir- 
am S. Brown for the first round of 
18 holes and conquered the old 
Washington grad 9 up and S to play. 
Next in order Jim paced and beat 
Harry Russell and Coach Kibler, 4 up 
and 3 to play. In the finals held 
play respectively. In the finals held 
on Labor Day Kreeger won from Mr. 
Stenger in 30 holes of gruelling golf, 
with 9 up and 6 to play. 

Harry Russell was awarded the 
qualification medal while Jim walked 
off with the club championship 
medal. As a golfer Jim has every- 
thing to be a Bobby Jones. Should 
Kreeger continue to improve as he 
has, all things remaining the same, 
it will be only a matter of experi- 
ence and time before he breaks into 
national prominence in golfdom.

With a ten game schedule, headed 
by the University of Maryland, be- 
fore them, the Washington College 
football squad has been hard at work 
for the past two weeks. Fortunate 
in having almost perfect football 
weather the first week, the squad at- 
acked the routine work with vigor. 
Fundamentals, punting and passing 
were stressed. Last Saturday the 
first scrimmage was held. Coaches 
Kibler and Ekaitis were pleased with 
the work done by the first offensive 

The squad was hard hit by the 
graduation of Plummer, Robinson, 
and Baker, all backs, and Carey p. 
lineman. The failure of Groswith. 
Carrozza and Jones to return will 
leave gaping holes in the line. This 
group were all letter men and their 
absence will be felt. 

Out of the squad of thirty-five, two 
teams have been formed with a tent- 
ative third team. One team is com- 
posed of letter men of last year, this 
team will probably start the game 
I against Maryland, and the other 
I team is interspersed by freshmen. 
The coaches have been pleased with 
| he work of the first group, but have 
'been working, almost frantically, to 
I discover replacements for them. With 
j the long schedule, the replacements 
| will have a great deal to do with 
whether Washington College's foot- 
ball season will be a success or not. 

The probable line up for the Mary- 
land game: 

Johnson — L. E. 

Nicholson — L. T. 

Lord — L. G. 

Harries — C. 

Dickerson — R. G. 

Ward— R. T. 

Gamber — R. E.

This is the first of a series of arti- 
cles dealing with football written by 
George Ekaitis for the "Elm". 
Ekaitis is well qualified to write on 
this subject, having been star quar- 
' terback on Western Maryland's un- 
[ defeated team of two years ago, and 
I having enjoyed a successful season 
| of coaching at Washington College, 
I last year. The "Elm" is fortunate 
| in securing Mr. Ekaitis as a column- 
ist. Coach Ekaitis' return to Wash- 
■rgton College as assistant to Coach 
Kibler in foot ball and head coach 
of lacrosse is a bright spot on the 
college sports program.

The football schedule which Wash- 
ington College faces this year is the 
touchest one arranged in recent 
years. It consists of ten games 
three of which are with Maryland, 
Hopkins and Delaware rated as first 
dns^ football teams in the East. 
While the rest of the schedule is with 
teams of lesser calibre Washington 

II find hard tussle before it all scu-

Washington - Delaware 

Contest To Be Feature 

When the Washington Collegt 
eleven faces the University of Delu 
waro gridders on the local field on 
Saturday, November 26, it will mark 
.he resumalion of grid relations be- 
vween these old rivals after a lapse 
of nearly ten years and will begin 
what is hoped to be a new era of ath- 
letics on the Peninsula. 

Washington and Delaware are nat 
ural rivals. Situated on the Deliuar 
va Peninsula and that sections only 
institutions of higher learning ii 
only to be expected that they should 
be sports rivals of the highest degree 
01 intensity. Such used to be th( 
case but as frequently happens then 
came a disagreement. The school; 
parted company along athletic lino^ 
for a number of years. 

Now they are back together again. 
It is expected that within a few days 
an announcement will be made of the 
donation of a trophy lor which the 
■■cams will battle annually. 

If plans now being discussed ai 
carried out the November 26 contest 
here with Delaware will be a notably 
occasion. Tentative plans call for a 
dance at which the Washington stu- 
dent body will be the hosts to theii 
neighbors from Delaware and a din 
ner, following the game, at which the 
two squads will be the guests of 

For the first time since Lacrosse 
i'iis made a major sport at Washing- 
ton College, several maroon and 
black stickmen were honored with 
mention or positions on the all star 
teams picked by Baltimore newspap- 
er experts Inst spring. Both "Frit?." 
Reinhold and "Dick" Gamber were 
picked as outstanding lncossors in 
college circles during the past stick 
season, by W. Wilson Wingate of the 
Baltimore "News" and "American." 
Reinhold was given honorable men- 
tion for the position of "All Ameri- 
can" goalie and was second "All 
Maryland" goalie on the learn pick- 
ed by Wingate for the "Amoricnn," 
Gnmber was given honorable men- 
tion fiir the position of third defense 
and Howard Plummer who plnyed 
point for the locals was similarly 
honored. Reinhold was also chosen 
81 "All Maryland" goalie by Paul 
Broderick of the "Baltimore Evening 

Both Reinhold and Gamber who 
played brilliant lacrosse for Coach 
Ekaitis last yoar'are mcmbqrs of the 
present junior class which (airly 
glistens with stick brilliancy. The 
juniors, who were instrumental in 
giving the locals, last year, their best 
lacrosse season since Lacrosse was 
introduced here, also list among their 
numbers such stick notables as Al 
Giraitis, Charley Clark, and Paul 
Pippin. These stalwarts, aided by 
'.heir experience gained in the last 
two years, should push their way 
right up to all star calibre during the 
coming year.

morning, Sept. 18, at 8:45 A. M„ in 
the Parish House adjoining the Pro-

mathematics in Washington College. 
Spent sometime in the West. While 
there he stayed six weeks at the Un- 
iversity of Southern California tak- 
ing auditing courses in mathematics 
and also courses in College Adminis- 
tration. The primary purpose of the 
trip however was to attend a meeting 
of the National Association of Dean: - 
and Advisors of men on August 22, 
2.1, 24 and 25, at the University ot 
California in Los Angeles as a ropre- 
BOntatlVO of Washington College. 

His itinerary included Chicago, 
Denver, Yellowstone National Park, 
Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Los 
Angeles, Catalina Island, Seattle, 
Portland and the Grand Canyon. 

The high-spot of the tour was a 
viewing of motion picture production 
in-ranged by "Ed" Luckey, a former 
Washington College student who is 
now working in Hollywood. 

Dr. Jones who is especially in- 
terested in Astronomy wofl exceed- 
ingly fortunate in having been able 
to spend a little time at the Astron- 
Onlcal Observntory at Mt. Wilson, 
which incidentally baa the largest 
telescope in the world. 

In his travels Denn Jones visited 
the U. of Calif., Lelnnd Stanford, U. 
U. of Wash., U. of Utah, and Wash. 
U. of St. Louis. He was at the op- 
ening of the Olympic games Aug. 27. 
The contacts mude by Dr. Jones 
while out West proved to be both 
■aluable and interesting. 


During the past vacation, Middle 
Hall has been made a better place in 
which to live. Most of the rooms 
have been attractively repapered, and 
the wood work painted. Roland 
Ready's "Slippery Elm" article in the 
final issue of this pnper Inst year, 
seems to have helped, for a water 
fountain presents itself on the first 
floor. The shower room has been 
painted also, insuring on all sides 
greater sanitation. 

The Fraternity houses, and East 
nnd West Hall have similarly been 
altered in a small but necessary man- 
ner. The foundation of East Hall 
has just been strengthened, to reject 

Tho new athletic field has not been 
worked on much this summer and 
consequently is yet far from being 
ready for use, but it is hoped that by 
icxt spring, it will be completed. 


Dr. Paul E. Titsworth will give a 
lecture to the "Elm" staff in the 
lassioom adjoining the president's 
office, Tuesday, Sept. 27, at 6:30 P. 
M. Dr. Titsworth will give valuable 
suggestions concerning the best meth- 
ds to be used in editing a college 
newspaper. President Titsworth was 
editor of the college newspaper when 
he was o student at Alfred Universi- 
ty. He also has had a great deal of 
experience in newspaper work since 
graduating from Alfred. 

Dr. Titsworth, last year, gave a 
series of similar talks that were e:.- 
ceedingly valuable and interesting.

At exactly 12:00 o'clock Sunday 
night a furiously hoard of upper class- 
men lead by Harry Huey poured in- 
to Rat Hall. The "Kats" were drag- 
ged and driven out of their holes, and 
'nken outside, where they were blind- 
folded. Then started a loud and 
noisy procession. In single file, the 
Tn'-. were lend nrnu-"l Rac Hall, by 
Middle ond East Halls, to Reid Hall, 

where the fair occupants there were 
serenaded by (or to) strains of "Let 
Me Call You Sweetheart." Then fall- 
ing into single file again, the Rats 
were lead down the Sacred L pass- 
ing many "low bridges," and 
through barbed-wire fences. During 
all this time, above the din, could be 
heard the whack of paddles and still 
above all this— Mike Wallace, lead- 
ing on his vandals. Finally the 
'Rodents" were lead into the gym

Gridders Meet Gallaudet In Washington 

Third Celebration] 
Held On Shore 


Big Armistice Day Affair At 

The third mamouth Eastern Shore 
celebration of this year will be held 
in Cambridge on Armistice day, No- 
vember 11th. 

This celebration follows the George 
Washington Bi-Centennial and Wash- 
ington College 150th anniversary cel- 
ebration held on the college camput 
and also the city of Salisbury's cele- 
bration of its 200th anniversary. 

1932 being Bi-Centennial year, 
floats showing important events in 
the life of George Washington will 
predominate in this number of the 
annual Cambridge Armistice celebra- 

Indications point to a celebration 
fifty per cent greater than last year's, 
when 67,000 people witnessed the af- 
fair, according to accounts of the 
authorities. The military display 
will be the greatest ever shown on 
the Del-Mar- Va peninsula. The par- 
ade will include Infantry Artillery, 
Tanks, etc. More than twenty-h\ 
bands and ten drum corps will be 
present to provide music for the af- 
fair, and at night a Mardi Graa will 
be staged. The celebration will last 
all day and the city is preparing to 
entertain 100,000 people. 

Whether or not, the celebration will 
provide the international flavor giv- 
en to the Washington College 150th 
anniversary by the German Ambassa- 
dor, Baron Von Prittwitz, and the 
presence of the Mayor of Salisbury, 
England, at the Eastern Shore's me- 
tropolis' celebration has not been 
made known. 

The executive committee for the 
affair is: George Holder, chairman; 
H. L. Harper, G. B. Wall, J. P. 
Swing, I. J. Barth, J. W. Hastings, 
G. D. Todd, R. Weygand, F. Al- 
baugh, D. H. Smith, E. C. Harring-

Assembly Speakers 
Announced For Oct. 



According to a brilliant entertain- 
ing speech given by Paul P. Harris, 
noted pacifist from Washington, D. 
C, on October fith in the Washington 
College Assembly, war within ten 
years is inevitable, from an econo- 
mic standpoint, if there is not an im- 
mediate international disarmament. 
It was also added that the present 
generation would be the ones to fight 
the war, so if they wished to avoid 
it, they should do everything in their 
power to reduce the present increas- 
ing armament. 

In the opinion of Mr. Harris the 
policy, "the well armed country is 
safe," has been continually proven 
incorrect in past history. The main 
issue in the world today is not wheth- 
er we should have peace or war but 
whether preparedness by armament, 
or general disarmament leads to a 
continued peace. 

To have a better understanding of 
European people and affairs Mr. Har- 
ris made a tour through France, 
Switzerland, Russia and other coun- 
tries. His accounts of his experien- 
ces there were both entertaining and 

The student body as a whole en- 
joyed the speech as it was character- 
ized by subtle humor on one side and 
intense sincerity on the other. Such a 
spirited forceful speech was a wel- 
come change from the usual uninter- 
esting talks which often are given in 
chapel, in the opinion of many stu-

Henry Whaland Catlin, ex-'94, 
died suddenly on September 27, at 
his home in New York City. After 
witnessing the fight between Schmel- 
ing and Walker he returned to his 
home for a late supper. Shortly af- 
ter the meal he collapsed to the floor 
and was pronounced dead from a 
heart attack. 

Announcement of the list of Octo- 
ber speakers for the regular weekly 
assembly programs, held each Thurs- 
day morning at 11 o'clock at Wash- 
ington College, was made this morn- 
ing by Dr. F. G. Livingood, chair- 
man of the assembly program com- 

Memorial services for the late Dr. 
Thomas Howard Fowler, former head 
of the Department of Romance Lang- 
uages, will be held on October 20. 
The program will include talks by 
faculty members, students and a 
musical program suitable for such an 

Tne Reverend Father Eugene J. 
Kraemer, rector of Mother of Sor- 
rows Church, Centrevilk*. will be the 
assembly speaker on Thursday, Octo- 
ber 27. 

Dr. Livingood, in announcing the 
assembly programs, stressed the fact 
that the public is cordially invited to 
attend the weekly programs along 
with the students and faculty. 

John E. Davis Talks 
To College Students 

At last Monday's Assembly, Mr. 
John E. Davis, who is a graduate of 
Washington College and Senior Ath- 
letic Director of the U. S. Veteran's 
Hospital at Perry Point, gave a most 
interesting talk on insanity and the 
way it affects the human mind. 

He described the common aspects 
of this dread disease saying an in> 
sane person lived for the most part 
in and by himself, that he usually 
made no effort to come down to real- 

He told how it was often possible 
to get these poor people started on 
the road back to normalcy by coax- 
ing them into playing some physical 
game where they get in touch with 
"things as they are," and so often 
dispelled at least a certain degree of 
their delusions and elements. 

He showed the really tremendous 
improvement that has taken place in 
dealing with these folk in the last 
few years. Mr. Davis closed with 
the hope that society would deal 
with the insane in the future even 
more humanely than it does today.

The locals came out of their battle 
last week practically unscathed and 
are improving on deficiences appar- 
ent since then. Bill Nicholson is be- 
ing groomed for the fullback posi- 
tion. Playing his first game last 
week in the backfield, Bill was a con- 
tinual bitter pill to the Blue Jays. 
Defensively, he backed up the line in 
grand style and consequently Hop- 
kins gained little ground after his 
entrance into the game in the second 
quarter. This big fellow also shows 
great promise of becoming a real 
plunging back, filling in a vacancy 
which has been unfilled at Washing- 
ton College for quite a while. 
Charley Berry who played such a 
fine game against Maryland as safety 
man, has overcome a foot injury and 
is ready to perform once again. 

It is expected that Washington will 
resort to an aerial attack. This 
branch of the game was particularly 
successful against Hopkins, a large 
number of passes being completed 
for nice gains. 

The lineup for this week will be 
unchanged as now foreseen, except 
that Nicholson is likely to start at 
fullback instead of Usilton. Lord 
will play at center, Captain Dickerson 
and Carey at the guards, Ward and 
Blisard at the tackle posts, and John- 
son and Gamber will perform at the 
wings. In the backfield Al Dobkins 
will quarterback, Giraitis and Rein- 
hold will play at the half-back posi- 
tions, and Bill Nicholson will hold 
down the fullback job. Fritz Rein- 
hold will again kick. 


The Womens' Student Council will 
hold a tea in Reid Hall, Sunday after- 
noon at 4 P. M. The purpose of the 
tea is to give the new students an op- 
portunity to become acquainted with 
the faculty.

SATURDAY, OCT. 8, 1932 


Since we have been at Washington College a very marked 
Improvement in the general attitude of the student body has 
taken place. We refer to the attitude existing toward the sys- 
tem of "ratting." 

Three years ago "ratting" was a very vigorous and definite 
custom, carried on as such until near the end of the year. Now 
a great many of the most undesirable features of this custom 
have been gradually but none the less definitely, eliminated. To 
the satisfaction of nil concerned, this elimination has been ini- 
tiated and carried out by the student body. As a concern of 
any moment, ""railing is now over by Christmas. 

It is significant that the leading "ratters" are not the stu- 
dents holding the respect and confidences of the general stu- 
dent body, but rather the ex-freshman who last year maintain- 
ed a weak and wary attitude but, who over the summer under- 
went a metamorphosis and come back to college with a hard 

Perhaps the hard boiled "rat eater" is more to be pitied 
than to blame for we know that he is really trying to work off 
an inferiority complex given him by one of his species during 
Ins livshman year in college. It is, however, a real pity thai 
he must, harm some other inoffensive boy in the process and 
thus keep up the viscuous circle, which once broken would cer- 
tainly stay broken. 

We must admit that we have indulged in "ratting" and 
argued ourselves into believing that it was a blessing to all con- 
cerned but always upon cool and fair consideration we have 
realized that such was not the case. 

It is not unreasonable to expect the freshman to abide by 
certain regulations applying only to himself and this will prob- 
ably go far a long, long time, but it is certain that many ob- 
jectless and objectionable practices now observed in ratting 
will disappear just as many others have before them. It- al 
ways seems just a little strange to break away from a preced- 
ent no matter how silly and such will be the case with those 
who have been used to "ratting." However, example and 
precedent in other and more famous colleges with advanced 
ideas on the handling of freshmen are even now exerting an in 
Huence on Washington College students in this respect. 

I wonder whether I should s 
hlng upon a subject about which 
riuch hos been said and little done. 
At Inst Washington College is hav- 
ng "pep meetings" and its, at least, 
start toward developing school 
spirit. But what "pep meeting.*!" 
They rather remind one of a group 
of children learning a new game 
who, everytime an error is made hide 
their embarrassment by glancing at 
one another and smiling a shame-fne- 
ed smile. 

What's wrong with us? Why, after 
having spent one or more years here 
do we have to read our cheers from 
a book? Why, when a cheer is port- 
ly finished do part of the group de- 
■p'lc tn giva the ending of some oth- 
er cheer, Why is there a lack of 
wholehenrtedness when we yell? 

The answer is to be found in the 
ndividunl. We go to cheer practice. 
Why? Because we feel that it is a 
duty. One student says to another, 
"Are you going to "Pep meeting" to- 
night?" The other student sighs or 
groans out "Well, I guess I really 
.should" and they mope along to the 
gym to give a few un-enthusiastic 

Not a pleasant picture of our col- 
lege life, is it? Or is it our college? 
Are we true Washingtonians or just 
p. disunited group of individuals who 
making burdensome duties of our 
college customs? 

Lets learn our cheers and leave the 
books at home. , Let's forget our pri- 
vate animosities, our little jealousies 
and petty dislikes, and appear as a 
strong loyal united college group full 
wbnle henrlert enthusiasm for a 
d fighting team. 

\n old idea comes to me. Maybe 
you'll think its not 30 "hot" but I'll 
at least mention it. The evening be- 
fore our first home game lets have a 
good old fashioned "Pep Parade" 
like the days when the class of '33 
were Rats. We'll get a few musical 
nstruments, have the Rats make 
ome banners and storm down town. 
If this doesn't stir our dormant sen- 
ses into some spirit nothing else ever 
will. What you sayin'? Let's go! 

THE ELM wishes to congratulate Coach George Ekaitis 
upon his promotion to the position of head coach of foot ball at 
Washington College. 

Coach J. Thomas Kibler, director of athletics and head 
coach of foot ball, basket ball and base ball here for almost two 
decade-:; told the editor that he believed Coach Ekaitis to b< 
now experienced enough to take over the foot ball reins in full 
Two things caused Coach Kibler to place Coach Ekaitis in 
charge. The first of these was that the Washington directo 
of athletics has been performing here the work of two men anc 
the second was that the present stvle of football taught al 
Washington was instituted by Coach Ekaitis. Coach Ekai 
will report to Coach Kibler in the latter's capacity as direc. 
of athletics. 

This placing of Mr. Ekaitis in the position of head coach 
football here appears to be a very wise act. As a player and 
student of foot ball the former Western Maryland quarterback 
star established himself as one of the greatest backs ever to 
play in the State of Maryland and as a coach he has shown tlv 
he posseses the ability to impart to others the wizardy he knows 
himself. The new head coach is a past master in the psycho! 
ogy of handling of college athletes. He knows how and'wlier 
to urge on a band of foot ball players. 

For Political Science Students: 

Why go to college? Is college 
made for political science or is polit- 
ical science made for college? Who 
made it? How did he die? 

— Temple University News. 

In the "Farthest North Collegian" 
we read that mastodons, mammoths' 
teeth and tusks, and prehistoric wolf 
skulls are being unearthed in the vi- 
cinity of the college. We wonder 
what amazing discoveries might be 
made if extensive excavations were 
carried on in the plot of land adjac- 
ent to our football field. 



Why should an absent-minded pro- 
fessor play minature golf? 

— Temple University News. 

Dean Archibald L. Bouton of the 
College of Arts and Science at N. Y. 
U. suggests that colleges advise grad- 
uates on earning a living. 

In too many cases," he said, "the 
lack of professional and practical 
studies comes as an unwelcome dis- 
covery to the liberal arts graduate 
and for a time he finds himself non- 
plused by the difficulty of getting a 
start in the business of a livelihood. 
At this point the college should pro- 
vide wise, kindly, and efficient coun- 
sel. There can be no doubt that we 
need a fuller recognition of the dif- 
ficult problems that confront stu- 
dents on graduation.

Hopkins Defeats 
Washington 21 To 

Nicholson Plays Best Game 
For Locals 

Washington College received its 
second setback of the season when 
defeated by Johns Hopkins, of Balti- 
more, at Homewood field, last Satur- 
day, Oct. 1, by the count of 21 to 0. 
The locals play poor football in the 
first and second quarters, allowing 
Hopkins to amass three touchdowns 
and the extra point after each of 
these. No score was made in the 
second half. 

Blisard kicked off poorly for Wash- 
ington and Hopkins had possession of 
the ball on their 45 yard line. After 
gaining some ground, Hopkins kick- 
ed deep into Washington territory. 
Reinhold returned the kick, Hopki 
having gained about fifteen yards on 
the exchange. Soon afterwards Reid 
circled right end for the first touch- 
down. Washington chose to receive 
and soon after the kick-off, Hopkins 
scored again when Weeks crossed the 
goal line, following a fumble by 
Washington on their 20-yard line. 
Shortly after the second quarter be- 
gan, Beeler completed a long pass 
to Kclley, and then Weeks scored for 
the final touchdown. After each 
score the extra point was made. 

Washington presented a more spir- 
ited team in the second half and held 
the Jays scoreless. During the third 
period several nice passes were com- 
pleted and a dropped pass over the 
goal line ruined chances for a touch- 
down. However, Giraitis who played 
a nice game defensively, intercepted 
a pass and ran forty yards to Hopkins 
2-yard line before being stopped. A 
certain score it seemed would result, 
but Hopkins' displayed an air-tight 
defense and withstood the Maroon 
and Black thrusts. 

Dick Gamber at right end, and Bill 
Nicholson at fullback, played best for

University Of Maryland Wins 
First Game Of Season 

In the opening game of the State 
football season at College Park, Md., 
Saturday, Sept. 24, Washington was 
overwhelmed by a score of 63 to 0. 

The hard-fighting, Maroon-clad 
warriors led by Joe Dickerson were 
no match for the heavy, powerful 
Maryland team. Led by Ray Popple- 
man and Earl Widemyer, two of the 
best backs in the East, the Old Liners 
scored two or more touchdowns in 
each period. The Byrd-coached 
team made nineteen first downs to 
four first downs by Washington Col- 

But the "pride" of the Eastern 
Shore went down fighting. Time af- 
ter time the backfield men had to 
make difficult tackles. Joe Dicker- 
son proved himself a very able cap- 
tain. He was given very good sup- 
port in the line by Johnny Lord, 
Wardy and by "Mike" Higgiston. The 
latter is a freshman who was playing 
his first football game. 

Foot Ball 

By George L. Ekaitii 

With the Maryland and Hopkins 
games behind them, the coaching 
staff is looking forward to the game 
this Saturday with Gallnudet. Mis- 
Lakes galores were found in the two 
games thus far and mnny and dras- 
tic are the changes being made. 

The work of Billy Nicholson in the 
backfield against Hopkins was very 
pleasing. Despite the fact it was his 
first game in the backfield, he dis- 
ported himself well. Along with 
Billy, the work of the ends was sat- 
isfactory. Outside of this group t 
jen»ra1 play was poor. 

There has been a great deal of 
shifting around among the players 
on the squad in an attempt to bol- 
ster the weaknesses shown in th" 
two games. John Lord is playing 
center, Baker has been moved to 
guard, Skipp and Nowak have been 
oved to tackles, and Tignor is be- 
g tried in the backfield. Three new 
en joined the squad and may be 
me use before the season is over. 
They are: Evans, a back; O'Farrel, an 
end; and Miller, a tackle. 

The probable starting line-up 
against Gallaudet — Johnson or Clark 
and Gamber at the ends; Blisard and 
Ward, tackles; Dickerson and Baker 
or Carey, guards; Lord, center; Dob- 
i and Nickolson, bucking backs; 
Giraitis and Reinhold wing backs.

George Ekaitis was recently mad< 
head coach of foot ball at Washing 
.on College. 

This is Mr. Eknitis's second yenr of 
coaching at Washington. Last year 
»e was assistant to Coach Kibler in 
foot ball and head coach of lacrosse, 
Mr. Eknitis's coaching was very pleas- 
ing and he was asked to return to 
.Vashington for the 1932-33 year. 

Coach Ekaitis learned his foot ball 
under "Dick" Harlow, of Western 
Maryland, and the famous Green 
Terror coach declared Ekaitis to be 
L>no of the smartest students of foot 
ball he has ever known. While in 
college Ekaitis wns twice picked on 
i he All-Maryland foot ball team, 
ohosen by Baltimore newspaper men. 
The new head coach of foot bnll gain- 
ed fame, while at Western Maryla 
as one of the greatest defensive 
backs ever to play in the East. 

Coach Ekaitis will again conch the 
Washington lacrossers when Spring 
rolls around. Last year, Ekaitis 
turned in a season record in the old 
Indian game that was truly remark- 
able. The former Green Terror 
raised lacrosse from a tottering place 
on the college sports program to the 
position of one of the most popular 
sports at Washington College. 

With better material for this hus- 
tling young coach to work with this 
year, local lacrosse enthusiasts are 
confident that the stick wielding 
pastime will continue its advance on 
the Maryland Eastern Shore.

Fall Practice In 
Lacrosse Is Held 

Reinhold, Gamber, Out For 
Foot Ball 

A somewhat informal Fnll lacrosse 
practice is now being held daily on 
Kibler field before foot ball practice 

Due to the fnct that most of the 
vnrsity men from last year are out 
for foot ball, the men working out 
arc for the most part freshmen. Dick 
Chambers and Paul Pippin are vara), 
y members of the 1032 team who 
aro instructing the new-comers in the 
fundamentals of the old Indinn game. 
Charley Morris, John McLain nnd 
Jack Knolhoff arc vctcrnns from last 
yenr's squad who nre also working 
out and helping with the recruits. 

Dick Gamber, Fritz Reinhold, 
Charley Clnrk, and Al Giraitis, all 
big cogs in the 1032 lacrosse wheel, 
are now out for foot ball and so un- 
able to attend the stick swinging 

Capt. Phil Wingate has his after- 
noons occupied with foot ball mana- 
gerial duties and consequently he is 
seldom able to chase the famous 
bounding rubber ball. 

Lacrosse seems to be very popu- 
lar with the first year men if the 
number reporting each day for prac- 
tice can be taken as an indication. 
Few of these men have played any 
lacrosse before, but with the practice 
in stick work they will get this Fall 
some of them may be of benefit to 
Coach Ekaitis next spring. Some 
more promising material will prob- 
ably be seen in the claBs of ".]C>, when 
the freshmen now engaged in foot 
ball practice unlimber their Bticks. 

Some of the Frosh out for Fall 
lacrosse are Dorman, Kemper, Cas- 
teel, Taylor, Pratt.

Memorial Service 
For Dr. Fowler 

Students, Faculty Members 

Memorial services for Dr. Thomas 
Howard Fowler, the late Professor of 
German and head of the Modern 
Language Department of Washington 
College, were held on Thursday, Octo- 
ber 20, at the Assembly of the Col- 
lege. Short speeches by members ol 
the Faculty and by students were giv- 
en on various phrases of Dr. Fowler's 
life and character. The orchestra, 
under the direction of Dr. F. G. Liv- 
ingood, and Mr. Raymond Moffett, as 
well as the Washington College choir, 
produced the musical part of the ser- 

President Paul E. Titsworth de- 
livered the opening address concern- 
ing Dr. Fowler in relation to the Ad- 
ministration, and as a personal 
friend. Dr. Titsworth gave a brief 
history of Dr. Fowler's educational 
career, and mentioned the occasion 
of their first meeting. Continuing, 
he cited those qualities of courtesy 
and firmness which characterized Dr.' 
Fowler as a faculty member. Dr. 
Titsworth praised Dr. Fowler's coop- 
eration and his true loyalty and de- 
votion to his Alma Mater. 

Following the address of the Pres- 
ident, Mr. Raymond Moffett rendered 
an appropriate vocal solo. Mr. Mof- 
fet is the Director of vocal music at 
the Washington College Assembles. 

Representing the students, Miss 
Theodosia Chapman discussed Dr 
Fowler as a teacher. Especially did 
she laud his methods, his procedure 
and his manner in class. She told 
of the desire to study and work und' 
him produced by his sincere interest 
in each student. She suggested the 
good fortune of the freshman who 
might have begun his college career 
with a class under Dr, Fowler. 

William Baker, another student, 
spoke of Dr. Fowler as an advisor and 

Mr. Paul Solandt instructor in 
Latin and in French recalled some of 
the joys and benefits of having Dr, 
Fowler as a fellow faculty member, 
and as head of his department. Mr, 
Solandt spoke of Dr. Fowler's friend- 
ship for people, and of his philosophy 
and the serenity which he had attain- 
ed by it. In conclusion, he quoted 
Tennyson's "Crossing the Bar" as in- 
dicative of Dr. Fowler's own faith as 
a Christian and a good man. 

Dr. G. Van A. Ingalls, Professor of 
English at Washington College, con- 
cluded the program by a mention of 
Dr. Fowler's contributions to the 
College. These, as Dr. Ingalls not- 
ed, were very many, but chief among 
them, she said, was his gift of a cos- 
mopolitan point of view. She stress- 
ed the gift this "citizen of the world" 
had made to a section somewhat in- 
clined to be provincial, in the form 
of a broad experience gained in many 
lands, from contact with many peo- 
ples. Dr. Ingalls cited the credit 
due Dr. Fowler for his formation of 
the small German library at the Col-

P"p Meeting And Parade 
Held At College, Bonfire 

Excitement at Washington Col- 
lege last night reached the fever heat 

Practically the entire student body 
came over to the assembly hall at 
6:45 P. M. and cheered the coaches 
and various players to the echo. 

However, this did not relieve the 
pent up feelings of the students so 
they shortly afterward massed to- 
gether and took the town by storm, 
blocking traffic and parading every- 

New rules and regulations govern- 
ing every local Blue Key Chapter uf 
the National Honor Fratternity have 
been recently drawn up. President 
Usilton has been notified of these 
mandater. in communications received 
from Mr. B. C. Riley, National Pres- 
ident at headquarters in Gainesville. 

New members who will be taken in 
this Fall must pay a charge of 55.00, 
which will be known as a registration 
fee and will be forwarded to Nation- 
al Headquarters to be used to main- 
tain National offices, necessary cler- 
ical help, pay for travel news letters, 
etc. Other important new rules are 
to govern the relationship of all lo- 
cal chapters. Men selected by their 
classes as candidates must be approv- 
ed by the faculty and in turn by Na- 
tional Headquarters before they be- 
came members of Blue Key. Ex- 
pulsion is the penalty for violation 
:i' many of these mandates, rules or 

They do not pertain to any present 
member of Blue Key at Washington 
College as the most recent pledgings 
were made in the Spring of 1932 and 
these new regulations were not ef- 
fective at that date. 

In its recent meeting Blue Key 
decided to hold its annual banquet 
on Wednesday evening, October 2G, 
at the Bell Haven. Choice of a 
speaker has not been decided on as

Reinhold Back 
In Form Today 

Close Game Is Looked 

In what in expected in be their 
toughest game of the season Wash- 
ington's griddors battle a well bal- 
anced and powerful team from Sus- 
quehanna in their first homo game at 
2:30 this afternoon on Kiblor Field. 
The Maroon and Black eleven came 
"" "i' Hie Loyola Cray with no mn- 
J01' injuries and with the exception 
of Rilonconi, promising Froah back 
who suffered a cracked rib in Mon- 
nay's drill, will have its entire streng- 
th available for todays struggle. The 
locals worked out for an hour in a 
pouring ruin Monday Htreusing tackl- 
ing. In scrimmages held Tuesday 
and Wednesday the backfield showed 
better timing and running form than 
they have to date. 

MnuDonald, with his foot injury re- 
reived in the first ncrimmnge of the 
season now completely healed, may 
gel; the nod to start at the center 
post. Higgiston is very likely to 
start at left end. Johnson, still both- 
ered by a sprained ankle, and Chas. 
Clark, and O'Farrel will see duty on 
Ihe wing positionH. Gamber will be 
at the right end berth. Capt. Dick- 
erson, Warren Carey and Lord, re- 
cently changed from center, will fill 
in the guard places as needed. Ward 
and Blisard will play the tackle posi- 
tions with Skipp and Bringhurst 
ready to substitute. Harries, Kap- 
lan, Omar Carey, and Sayler may be 
called to action in the center of the 
line during the game. Coach Ekaitis 
has a large number of backs from 
which to selects — ten in all. Berry 
who has not been ready to go since 
the Maryland game is sure to be seen 
under fire and Reinhold, Washing- 
ton's best punter, has recovered from 
an attack of grip and will see more 
service than he did in the Loyola en- 
counter. More than likely two sets 
of backs will be used. 

Susquehanna has a strong line both 
offensively and defensively support- 
ing a backfield of two heavy backs 
and two lighter but speedier ball-car- 
s. Susquehanna's men of the 
gridiron have an attack equal in 
deception to U. of Maryland's tricky 
offense and in addition have a scor- 
ng punch as evidenced by the large 
icores rolled up against opponents. 
Washington will look for everything. 
The Pennsylvanians have been point- 
ng to this game and are primed to a 
keen fighting edge for their battle 
with the Sho'men. 

The student body and a large 
crowd of fans will have its first 
glimpse of the Maroon and Black at 
home in what should prove a gridiron 
classic. The teams are evenly match- 
ed and both are ready and eager for 
the opening gun that will start the 
battle. Anything may happen.

The criticisms that have been levele 

ed, aimed .and fired at 
the ELM by students this year have been numerous and varied 
indeed. In fact, each and every department of the product of 
our humble efforts has found at least one critic and the sad 
part of the story is that we realize that the great majority of 
these withering remarks were deserved. 

However, there is one factor to this barrage that we can't 
yet understand. The most outstanding and most commonly 
presented criticisms of the ELM by the college students have 
been relating to the fact that the paper did not "burn up" 
someone. If the editor has understood correctly, the fondest 
desire of many of the students, is to see some one catch a hale ; friendly feeling and helps keep the 

Since the introduction of Saturday 
Classen nt Washington College, which 
necessitated the discontinuance of the 
gay old Saturday morning frolic, the 
Blue Key have had a problem on their 
hands regarding the frolic situation. 
The Saturday evening frolic hat 
proved unsatisfactory and frolic-lov- 
ing souis are nfter raising a howl. 
Due to the uncertainty of attendance 
the Blue Key find it almost impossi- 
ble to secure musicians. 

Now the administration has been 
drawn into the affair. The Blue Key 
petitioned for the right to issue sea- 
tickets at one dollar and a half 
to any male student who wished ■ to 
attend the frolics. 

This, they felt, would make it pos- 
siblo for them to render a more satis- 
factory dance, since they would have 
pomething with which to work. 

The permission to issue tickets was 
refused. On the surface the ticket 
idea seems like a good one, but is it? 
It might give a commercialized flavor 
to a college custom, or again in night 
living about better frolics. However, 
•he suggestion was an attempt to- 
ward a solution which shows some 
students ore interested. 

Quite a bit of criticism resulted 
from the rejection of the proposal. 
The administration could save itself 
from many criticisms by adopting the 
policy of publishing or announcing 
its reason for rejection of student 
proposals and a stronger feeling of 
co-operation between student and 
faculty would result. 

If the frolic is a time worn custom 
no longer popular it can be discon- 
tinued by non-support. It can be 
maintained, as it now exists, by at- 

The frolic perhaps perpetrates a 

Mr. Paul Harris's speech in Assem-

By their respective school papers, 
we see that the students at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, and those at 
George Washington University have 
had a big treat also.

National Symphony Orchestra, has 
given concerts at these Universities 
within the last two weeks. 



Mabel: "What was that young col-

When the eighteenth amendment 
was added to our constitution, the 
youngsters now in college did not

and hearty Bronx cheer. It doesn't matter who is on the re- 
ceiving end. 

We have been requested quite often to attack violently 
some college policy. When we inquired what policy to attack 
no answer was forthcoming. This, in our humble opinion, 
seems to bear out our belief that after all conditions on the 
whole are fairly satisfactory. 

Almost as numerous as the demands for a violent criticism 
of something have been the demands for a scandal column in 
the ELM. The volunteers for the position of author of this 
column have been about as many as the demands for it. It has 
been argued that such a column would add interest and pep to 
an otherwise dry sheet. This may be so. 

However we regret to say that we do not agree with the 
type of criticisms mentioned above — particularly the more rad- 
ical ones. Such material printed in the paper representing 
Washington College might appeal to a few people with a mor- j 
bid turn of mind but we do not thing it would appeal to the i 
great majority of square thinking Washington College students. ; 
Certainly it would appear to outsiders as so much unadulterated 

So if the policy of the ELM appears to be too staid and dry 
we can only say that we are sorry. We are following out our 
convictions and trying to present a representative cross section 
of conditions on the campus. If we make a miserable failure 
our only consolation will be that we have done our best.

on-the-wall" has, much to the sur- 
prise and discomfort of "Ye Ed," and 
at the unwilling expense of the pub- 
lic, granted to "The Washington 
Elm" exclusively his valuable time 
and inperceptible efforts. He has 
promised unfaithfully to express his 
observations, hand-made and man- 
made, rumors and scandals, and his 
own brilliant, illuminating gas in his 
world-famous, unknown style, heard- 
of as "Heardy-gurdy." True to his 
sportsmanlike ethics, he issues his 
famous motto as a warning to all his 
unsuspecting and unsuspected read- 

"If even your best friend won't tell 
you — then he is sure to tell on you." 

Again "The Washington Elm" ex- 
presses it's dissatisfaction with peace 
and comfort, welcomes the infamous 
columnist and his "Told To Me" col- 
umn into the realm of space-fillers 
and limbers up the old shot-gun. 

"Stop. Please, don't do that, dear! 
Stop. Do you hear me? Stop." 

"What do you think you are doing, 
writing a telegram?" 

—"The Log." 


The ELM wishes to congratulate the Freshman class upon 
the remarkable spirit that it has demonstrated since becoming 
a part of Washington College. The members of the class of 
'36 have shown a real initiative and force in college activities 
that is far different from the usual freshman attitude. Both 
the men and women of the yearling class have evidenced in 
their demonstrations of school spirit that is truly refreshing. 

The tin-pan band organized by the frosh before the Loyola 
game produced, to quote Dr. Howell, some of the best "music" 
heard in a long time around the campus. 

This same first year "band" was a valuable part of the fin- 
est and most genuine "pep" meeting we have ever seen at 
Washington College. 

The explanation of such a fine spirit among the first year 
students is probably tied up in several conditions. In the 'first 
place it is probably due in part to a general revival of school 
spirit. It is also due in part to a naturally good frosh class and 
an enlightened sophomore class which has allowed the first 
year men a measure of liberty and given them credit for a cer- 
tain amount of natural worthiness that could be best brought 
out by leading rather than driving. 

Ex-rat: "Dad, do you remember the 
story you told me about how you 
were kicked out of college?" 

Dad: "Sure, why " 

Ex-rat: "Well, isn't it funny how 
history repeats itself?"

Depression College | saDI 

Is Being Formed Alumni Notes 


Dr. Arthur C. Kill Is The 

WASHINGTON, Oct. 22, 1932.— 
Announcement of the faculty of the 
"depression college" at Port Royal, 
Virginia, was made by Dr. Arthur C. 
C. Hill, Jr., Organizing Secretary of 
the institution and originator of the 
idea from which it is developng. 

As so far appointed, the faculty 
comprises fourteen professors, of 
whom ten have studied abroad in uni- 
versities ranging from Edinburgh to 
Shanghai. Analysis of the faculty 
list shows that three of its members 
are graduates of Dartmouth, two of 
Columbia, and one each of Princeton, 
Harvard, Trinity, Illinois, Syracuse, 
Pittsburgh, Tufts, Rice Institute, and 
Oxford University, England. The 
English representative on the faculty 
is William Meades Newton, Esquire, 
who is a recipient of first class hon- 
ors in the School of Philosophy, Pol- 
itics, and Economics at Balliol Col- 
lege, noted for the number of prime 
ministers it has contributed to Eng- 
lish statesmanship. Mr. Newton will 
hold the Chair of Government at 
Port Royal. 

The "depression college" is design- 
ed to bring together experienced tea 
chers who are without positions be 
cause of the depression, and students 
who, because of financial stringency, 
are unable to continue their courses 
in existing institutions. The faculty 
will serve without pay, while under- 
graduate fees are being held to $250, 
covering all living expenses as well 
as tuition. A library of five thous- 
and carefully selected volumes, con- 
tributed by other educational insti- 
tutions and interested individuals will 
shortly be established in the bank 
building at Port Royal. 

Dr. Hill said today that great in- 
terest is being shown by the civic 
authorities there in the development 
of the college, which is to be known 
as Port Royal College. Arrange- 
ments have been completed whereby 
the old town hall will be placed at 
the disposal of the college for public 
lectures and the more important soc- 
ial gatherings. It is planned to open 
this unique institution on November 
1, while the newly appointed faculty 
are expected to be in residence at 
Port Royal a week earlier. 

"I am greatly encouraged at the re- 
sponse which the depression college 
project is receiving," said Dr. Hill 
today. "Inquiries have been pour- 
ing in from every section of the coun- 
try, and the co-operation of many 
leading educational institutions is as- 
sured. One concrete problem on 
which we are now engaged is obtain- 
ing credits for our students at other 
institutions. We believe that the 
quality of the instruction at Port 
Royal will merit and assure such rec- 

Remarking that he had just return- 
ed from a visit to the college campus, 
Dr. Hill stated "Of course a great 
deal still remains to be done, but 
most of the uncompleted details will 
be handled under our plan of stu- 
dents' self-help and should be more 
fun than otherwise. The students 
will be housed in two old colonial 
homes, whose wooded estates run 
down to the banks of the historic 
Rappahannock. Seventy years ago 
rival armies were contending across 
that stream. In the same environ- 
ment we are hopeful of playing our 
part in a national crisis perhaps as 
serious as that of the Civil War." 

A detailed list of the faculty mem- 
bers so far appointed at Port Royal 
College is as follows:

On Thursday, October 13, the 
Washington College /Assembly was 
the scene of an interesting and 
thoughtful address to the student 
body by Mr. Little, of Baltimore, Md., 
on the subject of putting "first 
things first" in college and in life. 
Mr. Little is a native of Minnesota, 
and is a graduate of Hamline Univer- 
sity of St. Paul, Minn. Previous to 
his residence in Baltimore, Mr. Little 
has been actively identified with Y. 
M ,C. A. and welfare work in the 
state of Missouri, where he hns con- 
ducted a number of enlightening re- 
searches among college students. His 
participation in and subsequent con 
nection with the life of the latter en 
abled him to speak with convictior 
concerning the problems confronting 
the student of today. 

According to Mr. Little, many of 
us are unable to view our tasks and 
joys in life with a proper sense of 
their relative importance. He con- 
tinues that the student must seek a 
balanced diet of activities on the 
campus if he is to maintain that bal- 
ance in life. The utmost care, he 
cays, must be exercised in the choos- 
ing of one's friends on the campus. 
Particularly did he emphasize to the 
Freshmen the importance of a dis- 
criminating selection of one's assoc- 
iates during the first three months of 
his campus life. 

Mr. Little's speech was unusually 
rich in personal anecdotes and human 
interest stories. Chief among these 
latter was his mention of "Pete" 
kson, a famous mid-western foot- 
ball star. Jackson, a personal friend 
dr. Little, recently committed sui- 
cide in Baltimore as the result of con- 
tinued despondency, said the Speak- 
Mr. Little had some time before 
taken an interest in the strange men-

The meeting was called to order 
by Pres. Ryan at 6:45. The com-

and carried that the "Pnjumn Par- 
ade" should be held Thursday, Octo- 
ber 27th, and to be started at 8 P. M. 

The Council discussed the possi- 
bility of chartering a boat to tnke the 
student body to the Loyola game in

dent body was to be called on Tues-

scheme would be supported. Fred

Washington 51 ToO 

Carlin Stars For The Grey- 


Resorting to n tricky forward paw- 
ing game, mixed with a deceptive 
running attack, Loyola's Groyhoundfl 
dashed to victory over Washington 
at tlie Baltimore Stadium I«Ht Sat- 

The Maroon and Black started ng- 
i'ir: i Ivoly with their oponfng kick-off, 
raeovorlng two Loyola fumbles deep 
In the enemy territory, but the local 
hacks were stopped cold and Wash- 
ington yielded the ball on down*. Af- 
ter this opening thrust Hie Loyola 
goal was never in danger and the 
Jesuits had very much their own 
way the rest of the afternoon alter- 
nating paBBOB mid runs to roll up a 
;1H point lead in the first half. 

The third quarter opened with 
Washington offering stubborn resis- 
tance and the opponents were unable 
to BCOre a single point. Late In the 

final porlod after Conch Ekaitla mode 
several replacements, a Carlin to 
Egiin pass and a one yard plunge by 
Haley after four successful passes, 
brought the Loyola score up to a total 
of Bl. 

Tim GroyhOUWlB have a heavy, 
alert, vicious, charging lino which 
turns to nn unyielding stone wall on 
defense. The backlield is fast and 
deceptive, with Al Cullen, powerful 
anil punishment-absorbing fullback,, 
Supplying the scoring punch, and 
Vlnei Carlin, quarterback, throwing 
bullet-like passes in a manner that 
will make fans forget Delaire, former 
Loyola passing expert. The Grey- 
hounds have the beat balanced team 
in the State and will give opponents 
plenty "l trouble. 

Warren Carey played nn excep- 
tional game at right guard, consistent- 
ly stopping and slowing up Loyola 
plays directed at his side of the line 
Higgiston at end, Skipp, tackle, and 
Bilanconl at half back, displayed 
Hashes of football ability that enn be

Victorious Grid 



Assorted Blocks 

Gill Bros, ice cream company en- 
tered into the spirit of the occasion 
when Washington tripped Gallaudet 
and decided the Maroon and Black 
squad deserved besides cheers and 
praise, something in the way of ice- 
cream. Accordingly, Sunday night, 
Oct. 9, the entire squad was given 
generously of their product. We 
thank Gill Bros, again for their co- 
operation and fine spirit. 

With the warm glow of victory 
very thoroughly squelched by the ov- 
erwhelming defeat by Loyola; the 
coaching staff is looking forward to 
the Susquehanna game with anxious 
eyes. Susquehanna is reputed to 
have one of the finest "small college" 
football teams in the East and n total 
of 82 points against their opponents 
none, in the last two games, is ample 
proof of their power. In Wednes- 
day's; scrimmage, a team using Sus- 
quehanna plays romped through the 
varsity, scoring four touchdowns on 
power ploys alone; thus causing 
greater anguish in the conching ranks. 

The defense against forward pass- 
es was very weak in the Loyola game, 
and a lot of work has been spent in 
an effort to strengthen this depart- 
ment of play. Tackling too, has 
been stressed, along with timing and 
coordination in running of offensive 
plays. In offensive scrimmage the 
enrly part of the week, the backfield 
finally began to run bard and as a 
result the offensive plays were run 
off much smoother than any time this 
reason; bringing a ray of hope that 
the offense may start going some 

One of the finest Washington Col- 
lege football squads in recent years, 
faces the climax this Saturday. Per- 
haps that something that makes for 
winning football teams will be found 
before the "home folks." That some- 
thing will have to be evident if Sus- 
quehanna is to be defeated. 

Modern Shoe Repairing 



Next to Sterling Drug 

The Maroon and Black of Wash- 
ington College defeated Gallaudet 
College in football by the score of 6 
to 0. The game played on Kendall 
Green in Washington, D. C, on Sat- 
urday, October 8th was outstanding 
because it marked the first victory 
for the Shoremen since the 1929 sea- 
son when American University fell 
before them. 

From the outset, Coach Ekaitis's 
charges showed marked superiority 
over the home team in every depart- 
ment of the game. However, fre- 
quent fumbles marred several scor- 
ing opportunities and not until the 
latter part of the fourth quarter was 
the winning tally shoved over. 

The first half witnessed the Shore- 
men penetrating continuously into 
Gallaudet territory. Time, after 
time Gallaudet would either recover 
a fumble or kick out of danger. Bill 
Nicholson proved himself an able 
bucking back by making yardage at 
will through the line. Al Geraitis 
and Fritz Reinhold skirted the ends 
for long gains. 

In the last quarter, Washington 
blocked a Gallaudet kick deep in the 
latter's territory, and then recover- 
ed Gamblin's fumble. This paved 
the way for the winning touchdown. 
Giriatis carried the ball around end 
for a score but offside penalties on 
both teams nullified this count. Bill 
Nicholson then ploughed through the 
center of the line for the tally which 
counted. The kick for extra point 
was blocked. Later Giriatis return- 
ed a punt sixty yards for his second 
touchdown, but he stepped out of 
bounds on the thirty yard line and 
was unsuccessful again. 

In general all-around performance 
Dick Gamber at right end played the 
outstanding game for Washington. 
Evans, in his first college game, 
showed he has the makings of a nice 
backfield man.

At 3:45 P. M. on Monday, October 
24th, the anxiously awaited Fresh- 
man-Sophomore tug-o'-war will take 
place at Brook's Mill. The battle 
was originally planned for October 
17th, but a heavy rain and timely 
consideration for the spectators caus- 
ed it to be postponed a full week. 
However the rainfall has caused the 
mill stream to greatly increase in 
size, which should make mud more 
easy to find for the contestants and 
the whole scene more interesting to 
the spectators. 

The tug-o'-war is an annual con- 
flico between the two lower classes 
and the traditional meeting place is 
Brook's Mill. The latter place, loca- 
ted a half-mile out of Chestertown 
on the Tolchester road, is the scene 
ot many an exciting contest. Although 
the "paddle-pushers" have won the 
event for the past few years the 
"Rats" have been able to put up a 
creditable showing. It is hoped that 
this year will see as good a tug-o'-war 
and mud fight as the last few years 
have witnessed.

regarding its bets on the outcome of 
Monday's fracas, but rumor has it 
that the wise boys are putting their 
money on the "Sophisticated Mor- 
ons." Regardless of this fact, the 
odds appear almost even. Seldom 
have two teams apparently been so 
evenly matched as those who meet 
to do battle for the honor of their 
class on Monday. According to our 
figures the "Rat" team as a whole 
outweighs its rival team by only fif- 
ty-four pounds. To offset this slight 
disadvantage, the "Sophisticated Mor- 
ons" have a year's experience, mem- 
ories of a defeat last year, and all the 
psychological advantages of Sopho- 
mores over Freshmen. Perhaps Wall 
Street is right in its five-to-three bet- 
ting against the "Yearlings," but it 
almost appears that "wise money" 
stayn in pockets. The outcome is a 
gamble either way; each class is get- 
ting keyed up for the fray; and it 
looks as though the clash ought to be 
interesting from anybody's point of

England and the beauty that nature 
has bestowed upon that beautiful is-

est to all members of the society and 
gives them nil a much clearer view 
of our neighbor land across the At- 
lantic Ocean. 

The next feature on the program 
.vac a solo by Miss Mary Jane Neild. 

Next; week the society will hear 
an addrers on the topic of Germany.

Maroon And Black Meets Mt. 
St. Mary's At Emmitsburg 

Ward, Gamber Back In Shape 
For Today 

SATURDAY, NOV. 5, 1932 



Ekaitis Looks Fo 
Close Game 

Washington's Maroon and Black 
gridders have better than an even 
chance of victory when they clash 
with a defensively powerful Mt, St. 
Mary's eleven at Emmitsburg this 
afternoon in their last State game of 
the season. 

Gamber and Ward have sufficient- 
ly recovered from injuries and will 
bolster a forward line that showed 
plenty of offensive drive in the Drexel 
tussle last Saturday. It is hoped 
that Harries, who received a broken 
nose while stopping play after play 
directed by Drexel backs over the 
middle of the line, will see some ser- 
vice at the center post. This posi- 
tion has caused the coaches much 
anxiety during every game. The lo- 
c»I .' backfield worked better in that 
game than it has all season and is 
slowly acquiring the smoothness of 
timing and co-ordination that go to 
make an effective attack. 

During the week forward passing 
has been stressed and should the 
Mountaineers stop Washington's run- 
ning attack, the Shoremen will take 
to the air as St. Mary's is especially 
weak in coping with the aerial game. 
The consistent kicking toe of Rein- 
hold will be depended on to keep the 
enemy out of Washington territory, 

Mt. St. Mary's has a heavy power- 
ful line backed by an equally big 
secondary and have earned the repu- 
tation of a defensive team. They 
have not won a game to date and 
have scored only six points in six 
games, but they are able ground gain- 
ers as proven in their making eleven 
first downs against an exceptionally 
strong Albright grid machine a week 
ago. The veteran Mt. St. Mary squad 
is anxiously gunning for its first vic- 
tory and will be ready to shoot every- 
thing for a win. After various shifts 
and changes, Coach Art Mallory of 
the Saints has hit on a combination 
that he thinks capable of tripping the 
Ekaitis men. 

In the daily practice sessions dur- 
ing the week attention was given to 
weakness in fundamentals as display- 
ed in the encounter with Drexel. 
Short scrimmage sessions were held 
on Tuesday and Wednesday. The 
entire Washington squad, with the 
exception of Harries, is free from in- 
juries and in good physical condition. 

This struggle with Mt. St. Mary's 
may be regarded as a game, the out- 
come of which will determine how 
successful a season the Maroon and 
Black will have. All are ready for 
the opening whistle.

Varsity Club Holds 
Dance; Vickers' Music 

The first informal dance of the 
season, given by the "W" Club in the 
College Gym on October 22, proved 
very successful socially. 

The gym was plainly decorated in 
the college colors of Maroon and 
Black. Music for the occasion was 
furnished by the well-known Vic 
Vickers and his orchestra. 

Coach George L. Ekaitis 
Coach George L. Ekaitis will take 
his Maroon and Black gridmen up to 
Emmitsburg today to engage the 
Mounts of Art Malloy. Ekaitis has 
visited the stamping grounds of the 
Jesuits before, when wearing the 
famous Green and Gold of Western 
Maryland. If the local coach meets 
with as much success against the up- 
staters today as he did when calling 
signals against them, there wilt be re- 
joicing in the ranks of the locals. 


Announcement has been made of 
the donation of a football tro- 
phy to be battled for annually by 
gridiron teams from Washington Col- 
lege and the University of Delaware. 
The trophy is the gift of United 
States Senator Daniel 0. Hastings, of 

The trophy will first be contested 
for by Washington and Delaware on 
November 20 this year when the grid- 
iron teams of the rival schools meet 
on Kibler Field, Chestertown. 

The team winning the trophy will 
hold it for one year. In the event of 
a tie the trophy will go for one year 
to the team not holding it at the time 
of the contest. 

Senator Hastings expects to be in 
Chestertown on November 26 to pre- 
sent the trophy to the winning cap- 
tain and plans are being formulated 
here to make the occasion of the first 
battle for the Hastings' Trophy a 
memorable one. 

Annual Pajama Parade 
Held Last Thursday 

With a burst of yelling and quite 
a lot of chatter from the upper 
classmen and especially the soph: 
the annual pajama parade got unde 
way on Thursday evening, Octobe 
27 at eight o'clock. The rats were 
paraded to Reid Hall where they 
"willingly" performed in the pres- 
ence of the women students. From 
Reid Hall the parade continued 
through town as usual and at nine- 
thirty the rats were told to get wood 
for a bonfire and bring it to the foot 
of the campus. Everything was go- 
ing smoothly until several city police 
made their appearance and ordered 
gates and benches taken from the 
fire before it was lighted. When this 
was done an egg of some age seemed 
to come from nowhere and uncere- 
moniously hit an officer back of the 

The parade this year lacked the 
pep and spirit of other years and un- 
less more interest is taken in it this 
tradition will more than likely be 


On Wednesday evening, November 
2; Ml. Mount Vernon Literary Socie- 
y met in the auditorium of William 
Smith Hall. AfLer a business meet- 
iif during which a number of new 
members were sworn in, the program 
war. turned over to the "Pig Alley" 

The first appearance on the pro- 
.ram was made by a dirty little pig 
— representing "Pig Alley" as it used 
-o be. This was followed by a talk 
by Wesley Sadler, telling of the orig- 
1" of the name and describing the 
"Alley" as it is kept today. Follow- 
ing this was a Shadow Talk by Robt. 
Shaull. The next feature on the pro- 
pram was piano selections by Vincent 
Brandolini, A short mystery play 
entitled, "The Haunted House" was 
presented by Messrs. Schaull, Rogers 
and Rhodes. Other features on the 
program were: Cornet Solo, Leroy 
Remsberg ; Ballad, "Sail Away," 
Robert Shaull; "Herman and George" 
Dave Wallace and Ray Wilson; The 
Super Salesman, Louis Goldstein; 
he grand finale — all the members of 
Pig Alley arranged in a semi-circle 
■iround the pig, which was all dressed 
up, lepresenting "Pig Alley" as it is 
oday; Farewell greetings from Pig 
Alley in the form of a shower of pigs 
in tights. Hot dogs! 

The radio announcer of the pro^ 
gram was R. Shaull. The success of 
(he program was greatly added to by 
the music furnished by Brandolini on 
(he piano. It added much to the 
creating of a mysterious air in "The 
Haunted House," and added to the 
effec" of "Sail Away," the Super 
-Salesman and the Cornet solo. 

Members of the Pig Alley group 
includes R. Shaull, Alfred Gardiner, 
Harry Rhodes, Calvin Rogers, George 
I Jones, Joe O'Farrell, Bill Watson, 
' Leroy Remsberg, Dave Wallace, V»n- 
I cent Brandolini, Ray Wilson, Ira 
Meassel, Harold Kennerly, Louis 
Goldstein and Wesley Sadler . 

Thir- was the first program of this 
kind ever presented before the socie- 
ty and was greatly enjoyed by al 
present. The program was entirely 
iriginal and each member of the 
group contributed something to the 

Last Wednesday the society had as 
its guest Dr. F. W. Trusscott who 
spoke on the topic of Germany. He 
pointed out to the society many points 
c-f interest, discussing the history of 
cities, religion, education and every- 
day life in Germany. He gave a 
route that one might follow in order 
to see the most interesting parts of 
the country. It was a very interest- 
ing talk and they all have a clearer 
view of this country of Europe. 


Prof. J. J. Coop 

Prof. J. J. Coop, head of the De- 
partment n f Physics at Washington 
College, recently received permission 
from the college authorities to start 
a new physics laboratory on tlic 
fourth floor of William Smith Hall. 
Since Prof. Coop has been at the col- 
lege he has done much to improve his 

His recent action was a part of his 
general plan to make physics a major 
department nt Washington College. 

Urge For College Band 

In the home game with Susquehan- 
na the college with the aid of the 
Chestertown band, helped to add 
spirit, but last week only three of the 
college fellows showed up for prac- 
tice, consequently the band didn't ap- 
pear at the Drexel game. It is the 
least that one who is capable can do, 
to play in this band. If you have any 
interest at all in the college you will 
help organize for the last two home 


Professor J. J. Coop of the phy- 
sics department has drawn up plans 
for a new physics laboratory in the 
attic of William Smith Hall. 

As the plans are now, it will occu- 
py the North wing of the attic and be 
divided into two rooms. One room 
will contain the two small windows, 
and this will be used as the main 
laboratory. Another small room 
with no windows will be constructed 
and used as a light laboratory. This 
plan will relieve a great deal of the 
crowded conditions in the present 
laboratory, and also allow room for 
more apparatus. As the school is 
not in a position to spend money on 
thin project at present, student aid 
will probably be utilized in building 

In the three years Professor Coop 
has been at Washington College he 
has helped greatly in the advance- 
ment of the Physics Department. 
Since 1930 he has added two new 
courses for the curriculum, increased 
the laboratory equipment almost 100 
per cent, and now his aim is to make 
Physics a major subject at Washing- 
ton College. With the new propos- 
ed laboratory a reality, this aim will, 
no doubt, soon be realized. 

Father Kramer Speaks On 
The Church In Assembly 

Father Kramer, Catholic Priest of 
Centreville, Md., spoke to the Wash- 
ington College Assembly, Oct. 20, 
1932, on the matter of Religion. 

It was his contention that most 
people considered a church as a dis- 
mal gloomy affair and for this reason 
church attendances was decreasing. 
He believed that if people approached 
religion from an intellectual stand- 
point this misconception would not 
occur. In his mind there are two 
sides to religion, intellectual and 
emotional, therefore a good religion 

it be one which must appeal to 
both of those qualities. 

The talk was characterized by 
Father Kramer's fluent use of elabor- 
ate figures of speech.

running within its budget. The 
buildings and grounds belonging to 
Washington College have also been 
materially improved during the re- 
tiring president's stay here. 

Dr. Titsworth was born at Asha- 
way, R. I,, May 31, 1881, and took 
his Ph. B. degree at Alfred in 1904. 
Previously he hud studied abroad in 
Berlin and Dresden. Ho attended 
Ohio Stute University, 1903-04, Uni- 
versity of Marburg, 1913, and took 
the Ph. D. degree at University of 
Wisconsin in 1911. 

After graduating from Alfred, he 
was instructor of modern languages 
there in 1904-07, professor of Eng- 
lish 1019-28, and dean of the Uni- 
versity 1920-23, after which he was 
elected president of Washington Col- 

He won fame as author of "A 
Biography for High School Teacher* 
of Modern Languages," published in 
1U02, and co-translator from the 
French of "Emancipation of Medie- 
val Forms," in 1906. He has long 
been a contributor on literary topics. 

In 1904, Dr. Titsworth married 
Miss Vida Rose Stillman, of Alfred, 
N. Y. They have three daughters, 
two having graduated from Washing- 
ton College. 

Alfred University, which on July 
31, 1933, will be placed under the 
leadership of Dr. Titsworth, has a 
,otaI enrollment of about 720 stu- 
dents, divided between an engineer- 
ing college, a college of liberal arts 
and an agricultural school. 

Dr. Titsworth last year, engineered 
one of the most important affairs in 
the history of Washington College, 
when the 150th anniversary of the 
founding of the college was celebrat- 
ed in conjunction with the George 
Washington Bicentennial celebration. 
The affair was widely broadcast and 
brought the institution much favor- 
able publicity.

SATURDAY, NOV. 5, 1932 


It is with great regret that we learn of Dr. Titsworth's leav- 
ing of Washington College after the present collegiate year. We 
regret his departure because we are losing a man of such high 
calibre. However, at the same time we wish to congratulate 
Dr. Titaworth on his hnving been chosen as the new President 
of Alfred University, Alfred, New York, to take effect next 
July. As a graduate of this University, and also because he 
has been connected with it as a member of the Faculty and as 
Dean, Dr. Titaworth is returning to his Alma Mater. We wish 
also to congratulate Alfred University on acquiring for their 
Head a man who has proven so well qualified in every respect 
to hold such a position. 

Dr. Titaworth has done more for Washington College in 
his domicile here than anyone in the more later years. In the 
first place the college enrollment has been doubled, and that in 
itself serves as proof of his untiring efforts and abilities. Again, 
the college has been raised from a tottering one, to the place 
that it now occupies among the small colleges of the United 
States. During his Presidency, Washington College has risen 
from one of C grade to the highest ranks of A classification. 

Dr. Titaworth has proven himself a real Napoleon in the 
cause of our college. His enormous amount of activities out- 
side the college proper, have not in the least taken away from 
his effectiveness in the institution, but rather have inspired him 
to do more for those and for the college under his influence. 

Therefore, in losing such a man we are unfortunate, but in 
having had contacts with him, we are greatly benefitted. Our 
wishes for continued success in the future are extended to Dr. 
Titsworth, in his new position. 

There is a bit of life in us after all. 
At least the enthusiasm the night be- 
fore the Susquehanna game and dur- 
ing that game and the Drexel game 
certainly made us all feel more like 
putting up a fight. Oh boy! What 
a game last Saturday. What a sur- 
prise the Dragons got and did the 
Maroon and Blacks play football! 
Great wasn't it? But we did miss 
our new band and hope they won't 
disappoint us again. 

Wife: "Oh, I am so sleepy! Is ev- 
erything shut up for the night?" 

Husband: "That depends on you. 
Everything else is." 

— "The Log." 

Perhaps the person who wrote the 
letter signed "Spectator" is using bet- 
ter judgment than most of us wish 
to admit. Some of the incidents 
surrounding the "Rat Pajania Par- 
ado" were really humorous and I en- 
joyed many a hearty laugh. After 
all is said, however, we probably al- 
lowed our emotions to get the upper 
hand over our common sense. I un- 
derstand that some of our uncalled 
for pranks have antagonized a few 
of our best friends among the town's 


What's this we've been hearing a- 
bout scandal. Well the other day I 
heard a fellow say it would be an ex- 
cellent idea if some one would pub- 
lish a scandal sheet in which would 
be printed only the "low down" on 
these individuals who always delight 
in seeing other people scandalized. 
Maybe the fellow wasn't far wrong. 
I suppose he had in mind the passage 
of scripture which reads, "judge not 
lest ye shall be judged," or words to 
that effect. 

He: "Look here, you're cheating." 
She: "I'm not. I had that ace long 

before the game started."

Academy . 

In Chapel Hill, N. C, teachers are 
being urged to abstain from dancing, 
smoking, drinking or card playing. 
They will also be selected with re- 
spect to age, as to whether or not 
they are married, and as to whether 
or not they attend church regularly,

In connection with this, I see in the 
Rollins College "Sandspur" that the 
Jackson County, Florida, School 
Board has threatened to oust any 
-cacher who attends a dance. 



There seems to be a lot of chatter 
about the oncoming Scotchmen's Ball 
scheduled for November 19th at the 
home of our fair coo-eds. Many of 
the "S. Y. T's" think that forty 
smackers is beaucoup bucks to plant 
down for an orchestra. Maybe the 
ones who are objecting were a little 
too slow in getting their particular 
choices in the "call-'em-up-and-drag- 

Now that open fraternity rush 
season is only a month or so away, 
the frat undercover men are work- 
ing hard to smooth things over for 
the "big push." It is even reported 
that some of them have moved their 
trunks into "Rat Hall" until after the 
battle, mother. How sad is the dis- 
illusionment of praised, pampered and 
petted freshmen a few days after 
Pledge Day! 

From the University of Michigan 
comes news of a feminine style rule 
on that campus. Gloves and hats 
are always worn to classes. The co- 
ed who breaks this unwritten law is 
ially scorned by her more conven- 
tional sisters. 

He: "I once had a girl and she 
made a fool out of me." 

She: "What a lasting impression 
some people make."

The spirit shown by the general student body during the 
Drexel foot ball game was gratifying. It was as "it should be. 
Washington College showed the most real and spontaneous 
enthusiasm that it has exhibited for a pig skin game in several 
years. When Russ Baker crossed the last Drexel white line 
standing up, neither Hoover nor Roosevelt would have poled 
more than a vote apiece, if a presidential poll had been taken 
among the college students at that time. It was as it should 

However, there is still something lacking. Washington 
College should not take the attitude that "until we are shown 
different we expect to get licked." Such an attitude, taken by 
the students at large, naturally seeps into the ranks of the play- 
ers. That is fatal. Such an attitude is not justified in relation 
to the present college team. The Maroon and Black CAN win 
every remaining game on its schedule — but only if it is backed 
up fully by the entire college. That would be as it should 

Washington College right now has an aggressive, improv- 
ing team. One big reason for that is because it has been back- 
pd up fairly well during its last two games. Things should not 
be allowed to slow up now. Those who want their alma mater 
to come ahead should not lay back and wait for a break to 
come. Assume the attitude at the start of the next two home 
games that we expect to click. Such an attitude will bring 
about the break that everyone seems to need. 

With this attitude Washington College will go places, 
athletically. And that would be as it should be.

Close Game 6 To 


Camber, Ward, Play Best For 

Scoring the only touchdown of the 
game in the opening minutes, Susque- 
hanna University defeated Washing- 
ton College in the latter's first home 
game of the season on Saturday, Oct. 
22nd, by the -score of 6 to 0. 

The game was a closely contested 
affair throughout, with Susquehanna 
continually keeping the Shoremen 
deep in their own territory. The de- 
fense playing of Coach Ekaitis's play- 
ers was outstanding and their ability 
in preventing Susquehanna from 
scoring any more touchdowns was the 
result of having been inspired with 
the determination to win if at all pos- 

Blisanl kicked off well for Wash- 
ington and it was necessary for Sus- 
quehanna to kick out of danger. In 
possession of the ball the Maroon 
and Black of Washington fumbled 
and lost the ball on their first play as 
a result of a bad pass from center. 
By a series of short line plunges, 
Susquehanna brought the ball to 
Washington's 5 yard line from which 
Sassaman, visiting left halfback went 
over for a touchdown. His try for 
extra point failed. 

In the second quarter a series of 
runs for good gains threatened 
Washington's goal again, but Sus- 
quehanna could not advance beyond 
the 11 yard line. 

Three or four times in the second 
half the Shoremen were driven with- 
in their own 5 yard line but continued 
to play excellent football at these 
crucial moments. Fritz Reinhold 
punted from behind his own goal line 
on one or two occasions, and this 
great punter thus prevented a higher 
score. Neither team made ground 
by the use of forward passes, and 
Washington gained by a succession 
of kick exchanges as the game neared 
its end. 

Higgiston at left end, Gomber at 
right end. and Reinhold in the back- 
field played exceptionally well for 
Washington, represented by eleven 
fighting men throughout the contest. 

The lineup. 

By holding them on even terms for 
almost the entire game last Satur- 
day, Washington College upset the 
predictions of Drexel, which came to 
Chestertown with the idea of using 
h ho Maroon and Black as a breather in 
their schedule before their major 
game with Ursinus. The final score 
28 to 13 in favor of Drexel does not 
tell the story of the hard fought con- 
test which took place. It was only 
in the final quarter, when the heavier 
weight of the Dragons actually forced 
the ball over the goal line twice, that 
they appeared to have an edge on the 

The first touchdown was scored by 
Drexel when Potter broke loose for 
a short run. Immediately following 
this Baker, a Washington end, inter- 
cepted a lateral pass to gallop thirty 
yards for a touchdown. Reinhold 
proceeded to kick the extra point. 
The half ended 13 to 6 with the 
Philadelphians on the long end of 
the score. In the third quarter the 
boys from the Shore carried the ball 
to Drexel's eight yard line from 
which place Nicholson bucked his 
way through to a touchdown.

this Saturday. With an average of 
nothing at all to boast about against 
throe State rivals thus far, the entire 
team and staff are pointing to this 
gamu and an opportunity to credit 
one winning effort in the state. Mt. 
*"■':. Mary's started the current season 
boasting one of the finest squads to 
represent that institution. The squad 
failed to live up to its early promise, 
but has been getting stronger as the 
season rolled on. Each succeeding 
game finding them giving a better ac- 
count of themselves. The coaching 
B'aft' has been bothered no little by 
'hi:: accumulation of power and the 
knowledge that the Mountaineers are 
difficult to defeat on their home field 

Work this week lias been devoted 
o the ironing out of mistakes appar- 
ant in the two home games. The 
general play in these games was good, 
u' there are a lot of fundamental 
"vita that have to be taken care of be. 
fore the team can hope to win foot- 
ball games. 

Pass defense and ntfense has been 
given a great deal of time too. The 
Mount having two very good passers 
and receivers in Lynch and Hopkins. 

The loss of Ralph Harries will be a 
seriour handicap. His general play 
a!, center has been very good all year 
and his steadines swill be missed. 
MacDonald will probably start in his 
place. The rest of the squad has suf- 
fered no major hurts and shall be in 
good shape to start the game Satur- 

The starting team will probably be 
the same as the one that started 
against Drexel with MacDonald re- 
lacing Harries and with Camber and 
Baker at the ends.

The 1933 Washington College 
lacrosse schedule has not been com- 
pleted yet but graduate manager of 
athletics, Frederick W. Dumschott, 
has already listed six stick engage- 
ments for George Eknitis' lacrossers. 
All of those six teams have appeared 
on the locnl's schedule before. 

The Maroon nnd Black twelve will 
meet four State teams in 1533. Three 
of these contests, tho ones with Hop- 
kins, U. of Md., nnd St. Johns, will be 
gomes in which the Shoremen will be 
conceded small chance of a victory. 
However, the game with Western 
Maryland will be a tussle toward 
which Coach Ekaitis will probably 
point his charges. Lost year tho 
Terror stickmen "laid for" their for- 
mer team mate and defeated his fav- 
ored band of lacrossers from the 
Eastern Shore by a .'1 to score. The 
former Western Mary hind star will 
not be satisfied until that count is 

The other two games listed so fnr 
are with Lehigh and Virginia. In 
the only contests ever played with 
theso institutions Washington each 
I imc emerged tho victor, defeating 
Lehigh 3 to 1, last year, and Virginia 
9 to 1 in 1931. 

If a couple of other engagements 
with out of slate twelves are booked, 
the loculs will have u satisfactory 
schedule despite the fact that they 
face very tough opposition in at least 
three of their games. 

Tho games scheduled up to date 
' are as follows: 

April 2 — St. Johns at Annapolis. 

April 8 — Hopkins nt Baltimore. 

•April 22— Western Maryland at

An Editorial- 

Some years ago "The Friendly 
College" was a slogan frequently 
used in connection with our own 
school. Let that slogan be re-adopt- 
ed by the Washington student body 
and turned loose with all its vigor 
for the week end of November 26th, 
when University of Delaware stu- 
dents and alumni visit our campus 
in connection with the renewal of 
gridiron relationships between the 
two institutions. 

We have extended an invitation 
to the Delaware groups to be our 
guests on the coming occasion and 
by so doing have done much to heal 
the breech that occurred long be- 
fore the present student bodies, at 
either institution, matriculated. Fail- 
ure to back up this invitation with 
the spirit in which it was extended, 
and accepted, would result in a wast- 
ed effort. 

It is not our intention to call upon 
the Washington students to to be 
gentlemen and good sports. These 
they already are. We are urging, 
however, that all connected with 
Washington College display a spirit 
of friendliness on November 26. In 
the intensified rivalry that is bound 
to exist we do not want to . forget 
that our friends from Delaware are 
our guests. 

The following lines should char- 
acterize our attitude: 

"Hail Guest. We ask not what 
thou art 

If Friend — we greet ln ee 
Hand and Heart 

If Stranger — such no longer 
be ... . 

If Foe — Our Love shall conquer 
Thee . " 

And we should greet our own 
alumni with the same spirit. They 
are, in a manner, visitors and 
guests. Although they knew these 
halls long before we did we are the 
present tenants and therefore the 
hosts. Let's give them a rousing 

We know, too, that we are ex- 
pressing the feelings of our coaches, 
Ekaitis and Kibler, when we say 
that the Washington eleven is ex- 
pected to play hard and aggressive 
football but at the same time play 
fairly and with a spirit of comrade- 
ship, without which the playing goes 
for naught. 

Le'. Washington truly be "The 
Friendly College." 

Heavy Rain Makes Poor 
Playing Conditions Today 

A heavy rain that began last night 
at about 8 o'clock and continued all 
night will make strained playing con- 
ditions for the Washington-St. Jos- 
eph's foot ball game. 

When the ELM went to press this 
morning, Kibler field was a muddy 
patch of ground with water standing 
three inches deep in places on it and 
still no sign of a let-up from the 
heavens was visible. This condition 
of the field will probably work ad- 
vantages for the visitors, who out- 
weigh the locals. The wet condition 
of the ball and field will also greatly 
hamper the forward passing, where 
Washington was conceded to have an 

However, while it is generally con- 
ceded that the weather will be favor- 
able to St. Josephs, Washington back- 
ers can not help recalling the Mary- 
land game of two years ago when the 
little men of Ekaitis slopping about 
in the mud of Byrd Stadium played 
one of the finest teams ever to repre- 
sent the Old Liners to a stand-still.

Home Coming To 
Be Held Nov. 26 

Delaware Grid 

Washington College is planning to 
make Nov. 26 a big day in the athle- 
tic history of the ocllege. That day 
will mark the renewal of gridiron re- 
lationships between the Maroon and 
Black and the University of Dela- 

The awarding of the Daniel 0. 
Hastings trophy to the winning team 
and the fact that this day will be 
"home-coming" for Washington alum- 
ni is expected to make the affair even 
more colorful. 

The athletic authorities are making 
preparations to accommodate one of 
the largest crowds ever to attend a 
pigskin game played on Kibler field. 
Temporary stands are now being 
erected on the west side of the field, 
opposite the main body of stands, to 
help provide seats for the expected 

For several weeks the students and 
alumni have been planning for the 
affair. On Tuesday, Nov. 16th. Hu- 
bert Ryan, president of the Student 
Council, and Joe Dickerson, football 
Captain and President of the Senior 
Class, travelled up to Newark, Del., 
to extend an invitation to the Dela- 
ware Undergraduates to be present. 
Similar invitations have been extend- 
ed Delaware alumni and faculty mem- 
ber! Fred Dumschott, graduate 
■nanager of athletics at Washington 
College has made a special admission 
rate to the Delaware students who 
are expecting to attend the game, ac- 
companied by their band and cheer 

Under the direction of Harry S. 
Russell, of THE ENTERPRISE, plans 
have been formed to organize an 
alumni "W" club. This club will 
consist of all men who earned a tna- 
jor athletic letter while attending 
Washington College. A lurtcheon 
~iven at 12:30 P. M. for the alumni 
will be another feature of the day. 

Tho days festivities will be climax- 
ed in the evening by a dance at which 
he Delaware groups will be thi- 
guests of the Washington students 
and alumni. 

The football game will start 
iromptly at 2:00 P. M. and will be 
■receeded by a girls' hocky game held 
->n the lower part of the campus. Be- 
Iween the halves of the game, the 
Teshmen will put on a mock grid 
game and other humorous stunts.

St. Joseph's "Buried" 
At Pep Meeting 

Last night at the regular weekly 
pep meeting the occupants of "Pig 
Alley" came forward with a time 
honored procedure for urging on the 
grid team. They enacted, solemnly, 
the burial of a dummy representing 
the football team of St. Joseph's 
College. A suitable ritual was read 
by "Father" Wes Sadler as parts of 
'he coffin were added. Nails were 
added to represent the touchdowns 
made by Washington and an extra 
'ap was given for each of the fine 
place kicks made by Reinhold. 

This was the first time that such 
an act has been put on this year, and 
it was received well by the assembled 
students who seemed to take a rath- 
er unholy delight in the unhappy end 
of their "fallen foe."

Rushing Regulations 
Made By Fraternities 

The regulations for the 1932 fresh 
man rusing period were set up re- 
cently at a meeting of the fraternity 
committee called by Dr. J. S, 

Each Fraternity will be limited to 
one official rush function to be held 
during the last three weeks before 
the Christmas vacation begins. In 
the casting for lots, the Phi Sigma 
Phi, drew the first date. The Alpha 
Kappa will hold its function second, 
while the Phi Sigma Tau drew the 
last week before the holidays for the 
time of its rush function. 

The "Silence Period" will begin 
at 12:00 P. M. on the Sunday before 
Christmas holidays and extend until 
5:00 P. M. on Monday. During this 
period no fraternity man will be per- 
mitted to speak to any freshman. 
The same rules will apply to upper 
class students spending their first

Close Game Is Looked 


Disappointed by the one-point de- 
feat lust week at the hnnds of Haver- 
ford, Washington College today fac- 
es St. Joseph's College, of Philadel- 
phia, on Washington Field. All in- 
dications point to a victory, and the 
squad has been working out hard all 
week, polishing up on weaknesses. 

St. Joseph's defeated Washington 
last yenr by n score of 20 to 0, at 
Philadelphia to score their only vic- 
tory of the 1931 season. This year 
they have been unsuccessful as far 
as winning games, but boast. ;i hard- 
fighting tenm, nnd can be expected 
to give the Maroon nnd Blnck a real 
battle. However, basing tho two 
teams on their merits Washington 
seems to have the edge. Lnst year 
the nbsence of four or five injured 
regulars accounted for their defent. 
This year with the entire team in- 
tact, with a better aerial attack, and 
a better all-around tenm though un- 
fortunate in several games, the locals 
have proven themselves plenty tough. 

Al Dobkins will be calling signals 
this afternoon and his backfield 
mates will be Charley Berry, Fritz 
Reinhold and Fred Usilton or Bill 
Nicholson. This combination played 
good football last week and is expect- 
ed to go places against St. Joseph's. 
On the line Harries or McDonald will 
bo play center, Captain Dickerson 
and Carey or Lord will fill in at 
guards, Blisard and Ward at tackles, 
and Dick Camber and Mike Higgiston 
will cavort at the wings. These lat- 
ler two played bang-up games last 
week and little gain will bo made 
around their end-posts this afternoon. 

Fritz Reinhold will handle the kick- 
ing assignments, and so the Shore- 
men can expect an advantage along 
that line. Playing before a home 
crowd, sore from defeat last week, 
and hoping to avert a disastrous sea- 
son, the Maroon and Black will be on 
their toes today for their second vic- 
tory of the current season. Watch 
for a close game.

SATURDAY, NOV. 19, 1932 


Washington College, it seems to us, is located very favor- 
ably as tar as a chance I'm' expansion is concerned. It is the on- 
ly college on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and if the college 
were to draw the per cent of students that it should naturally 
be expected to draw from this section, the enrollment would 
easily be Iripled. 

This institution has shown its worthiness by over one hun- 
dred ami fifty years of existence. The only college named af- 
ter George Washington by his expressed consent has seen its 
Star sink very low on occasions but right now it is resting at 
about the highest spot it lias ever known. The progress made 
by Ibis college under the leadership of Dr. Paul E. Tilsworth 
has been tremendous and this advancement according to our 
way of thinking, has placed Washington in a unique position for 
far greater development. It has made the people of the Eas- 
tei ii Shore cagnizant of the fact that the Shore's only college is 
offering an education to their sons and daughters that com- 
pares favorably with the training they could receive at other 

It also seems to us that the Eastern Shore of Maryland 
should be an ardent supporter of Washington College. It is 
this same Eastern Shore that has often been accused of being 
plebian and uncultured by other sections of Maryland. Yet 
the Eastern Shore boasts the oldest seat of culture in the entire 
State of Maryland. Washington College was an exponent of 
higher learning when the oilier universities and colleges in the 
state were as yet unthought of. Surely this college with its 
long record of service and benefit to the section where it is lo- 
cated deserves the energetic support of every Eastern Shore- 

All of which brings us to the following point. In order to 
realize this development which the college has earned the right 
to expect, it is necessary that the material effects of the institu- 
tion be increased. If Washington College is to minister to the 
needs of and represent this section of Maryland as it should, it 
musl be given more aid than it has been receiving. Washington 
must be given means for the building of dormitories and halls 
that would enable it to accommodate many more students than 
it can at present. It must not be forced to continue to restrict 
its enrollment. 

h is not unreasonable to expect a great deal of this aid to 
come from the state — in view of the sums now being appropri- 
ated tnr education and in view of the service that the expend- 
ing of the necessary money would enable Washington College 
to render to an important section of Maryland. 

Eastern Shoremen who resent the attitude (often given 
public expression) that they are culturally and intellectually 
behind the rest ot the state should be firm supporters of Wash- 
ington College. It is one of the best arguments they can offei 
in refutation of the above statement. 


It seems a pity that the college authorities have decided to 
give only a one day vacation for all future Thanksgiving holi- 
days. We maintain that this is not enough time off from col- 
lege work to enable the average student to express his gratitude 
to the powers that make things as they are. 

The faculty undoubtedly has a preverted idea of the a 
mount of thanksgiving that students here would like to indulge 
if they think we can give expression to all of it in twenty-foui 
1 urs. It takes the average college student that much time to 
v rite a two page history paper. Well maybe not quite that 




Some few students do visit 
library during the evening hours for 
the of working. The great 
majority, however, seem to consider 
the library a club room or a general 
gcl-ln-gether meeting place. 

During the past few weeks I have 
observed many frowning countenanc- 
es nnd heard quite a few murmurs of 
discontent on the part of the more 
diligent students who were trying to 
study. A few have expressed the de- 
sin- in .sue the system of bye gone 
duys put into effect which would, of 
course, bar the fair sex from even- 
ing library privilege. Although both 
sexes converse in loud voices, the 
giggling girl seem to be the greater 
source of disturbance. 

A little thoughtful on our part can 
remedy existing troubles and remove 
the current causes of complaint. 

We nil have a philosophy of life. 
The following sketch was given to 
me by a traveling salesman in whose 
philosophy I think we can find some 
humor and an element of truth. 


Man is of few days and full of 
trouble. He laboreth all the days of 
hir. youth to pay for gasoline chariot, 
and when at last the task is finished, 
lo, the thing is junk and he needeth 

He planteth cotton in the earth and 
illeth it diligently, he and his ser- 
vants, and his asses, and when the 
larvest is gathered into the barns, he 
>weth the landlord $8.40 more than 
he crop is worth. 

He borroweth money of the lenders 
Lo buy pork and molasses, gasoline 
and oil and the interest eateth up all 
.hat he hath. 

le begets sons and daughters and 
educateth them to smoke cigarettes, 
nd wear white collars, silk under- 
.car and hose, and lo, they have soft 
hands and neither labor in the fields 
nor anywhere under the sun. The 
hildren of his loins are enerous and 
ne of them becometh a lawyer and 
another sticketh up a filling station 
•nd makelh whoopee with the sub- 
stance thereof. The wife of his bosom 
icckcth with a stranger and when he 
K-buketh her, lo, she shooteth him in 
the finale. 

He goelh forth in the morning on 
the road that leadcth to the city and 
k jitney smiteth him so that his ribs 
projecteth through his epidermis. He 
d.inketh a drink of whoopee juice to 
orget his sorrows and it burnetii out 
he linings from his liver. 

All Ihe days of bis life he findeth 
10 parking place, and is tormented by 
raffle cops from his going forth un- 
il his coming back. 

An enemy stealeth his car, physi- 
cians removeth his inner parts and a 
dentist his teeth, also his bank roll, 
-lis daughters showeth their legs to 
strangers, his arteries harden in the 
veiling of his life, and his heart 
nisteth trying to keep the furious 

Sorrow and bill collectors followeth 
lim all the days of his life, nnd when 
he is gathered unto his Father, the 
■eighbors sayeth: "How much did he 
leave?" Lo, he hath left it all. 

And his widow rejoiceth in a new 
coupe and maketh eyes at a young 
heik that slick eth his hair and piay- 
Qth a nifty game of poker. 

Woe is man. And from the time ol 
his birth to the lime when the earth 
.noweth him no more, lie laboreth for and catcheth the devil. Dust 
iie was in the beginning, and now his 
name is mud.

Speaking of the cafeteria, and a 
column of this sort is compelled to do 
so, we surprise ourselves by admit- 
ing that in our humble opinions and 
utmbed stomachs, the meals to which 
we are exposed seem to have im- 
proved slightly over those of former 
years. However, we've heard much 
criticism against our beloved cafeteria 
and we wish to present three points 
in its defense: 

1. Times are bad. In fact they 
Lire awful. Salaries are worse this 
year than they were last year. Every- 
thing is worse. Therefore the meals 
riave a right to be worse.

good meals. 

3. Consistency is one of the se- 
crets of success. No one can say the 
meals are not consistent.

Wonder who it is. 

According to downtown news- 
stands, the sale of "Brevities" has 
noticeably increased as a result of the 
interest it has aroused among the lit- 
erary lights of Reid Hall. And 
.peaking of lights, we hear that the 
fair students are still trying to figure 
out who turned off the lights in their 
dormitory on Hollowe'en. You never 
can tell anything about Reid Hall — 
and if you can, you'd better not. 

During one of the noon-day meals, 
we noticed a freshman jump in line 
to get a second order of liver ahead 
>f his turn, for which he was prompt- 
ly called down by an upperclassman. 
We surely hope that he didn't want 
to get his liver out of order. 

We've heard the library character- 
ized by the titles of "court room" and 
"reception room," but we don't know 
what to call it when we hear that

taken advantage of his connection

It now seemed thai Washington

Annual Game To Be Played 
Week After Thanksgiving 

For the past several weeks the 
Freshmen and Sophomores have been 
practicing football in preparation for 
the came which is to be played soon 
after the Delaware game. Both class- 
es have been afforded with coaches. 
Fred Usilton and John "Stag" Lord 
are directing the destinies of the 
Sophomore outfit while "Dobby" 
Dnbkins and "Dick" Gamber are tak- 
ing charge of the first year men. 

Because of the extreme secrecy on 
the part of both teams it has been 
difficult to obtain very much informa- 
tion regarding the tentative lineup. 
However it has been inferred that 
"Pokey" Joe Mooney will be the 
backfield mainstay of the Sophomore 
"cam with thriple threat man, Duffy, 
(stumble, fumble and fall) as his as- 
sistant. It has been rumored that 
he tactics which the Freshmen in- 
tend to pursue is, to have "Bruiser" 
Kemper and "Pepper" Campbell bat- 
ter down the opposition with their 
powerful smashing line bucks. 

The men who will form the nucleus 
of the Sophomore team are: Mooney, 
Chambers, De Socio, Cooper, Measell, 
Goldstein, Cornelia, Sayler- and 
Rhodes. The most promising look- 
g players on the Freshman squad 
are: Novak, Evans, Tignor, Skipp, 
Miller and Fink. Should some of 
h" Freshman who are on the foot- 
ball squad fail to make their letter 
the first year team's chances would 
_' greatly enhanced. 

During the next week the training 
■ f both teams will be tapered off in 
■rder to assure perfect physical con- 
dition for this annual spectacle. As 
yet not many bets have been placed 
due to the fact that Sophomore mon- 
ey seems to be unduly scarce.

Holds Banquet w 


Meridan Club Scene 


i n g t o n i 

On Friday evening, November 18, 
the twelfth anniversary banquet of 
the Philadelphia Chapter of the 
Washington College Alumni Associ- 
ation was celebrated in the Meridian 
Club, Philadelphia, in the presence 
of a goodly number of "old grads," 
ex-students, and under graduate stu- 
dents of the college. 

Under the efficient direction of W. 
Coulbourn Brown, Class of '95, a 
most enjoyable dinner was served, af- 
ter which President Paul Titsworth 
gave a very encouraging statement as 
to the present condition of the col- 
lege, but saddened the hearts of all 
by the announcement of his intention 
to accept the presidency of Alfred 
University, his alma mater, at the 
close of the college year next June. 
This announcement was received with 
many expressions of sincere regret, 
as all were convinced that the change 
would mean a serious loss to Wash- 
ington College which institution Dr. 
Titsworth has served for a number of 
years with conspicuous zeal and abil- 

The singing of the college glee club 
was greatly enjoyed, as was also the 
able address by Mr. Charles H. Sykes, 
cartoonist of the Philadolphia Even- 
ing Ledger. After an interesting 
talk by Dr. Howell, of the college, 
Dr. Titsworth showed a number of 
unusually valuable and worth while 
moving pictures of the college and 
surroundings, including a number of 
views taken at the time of the recent 
sesqui-centennial celebration of the 

H. P. Ford, Class of '76, thought 
that the color scheme of the evening 
(orange and black) should have been 
all black, for three reasons: 1st, be 
cause of the resignations of Dr. Tits 
worth; 2nd, because of the recent 
death of Dr. Sewell Hepburn, the old- 
est Washington College graduate; 
and 3rd, in order to be in accord with 
the feelings of any Hooverites who 
might be present. 

The Association has never enjoyed 
a more successful evening. Memories 
of the college and Chestertown are 
still dear to the hearts of many of the 
old students. 

Jubilant Freshman, disappointed 
but good natured Sophomores, upper 
classmen, and Faculty Members, all 
combined last night in an informal 
dance in the gymnasium. The dance 
sponsored by the Frosh and Soph 
classes was one of the nicest held at 
Washington College in quite a while. 
Celebrating a decisive victory over 
the Sophomore football warriors, the 
Freshman team and classmates enjoy- 
ed themselves to the greatest extent, 
while the not too large group of up- 
per classmen intermingled in friendly 
feeling. The Sophomores, though 
badly beaten, were willing to offer no 
alibis, all helping to make more firm 
the calling of Washington College a 
Friendly one. 

Though it was planned that the 
Silver Loving Cup be presented to the 
Freshmen at this dance, the presenta- 
tion was put off until a later time. It 
is remembered that last year, the cup 
was first given to the winner of this 
annual Frosh-Soph Classic which 
that case was the present Junior 

The Washingtonians furnished ex- 
cellent music, the gym was simply 
but effectively decorated, and in gen- 
eral everything went off smoothly. 

Among the chaperones were Dr. 
J. S. William Jones, Dr. Howell, Prof. 
and Mrs. Dumschott, Miss Brewer, 
Prof. Goodwin, Prof, and Mrs. Ford, 
Coach George L. Ekaitis.

Howard T. Ennis, Supt. of Dela- 
ware Colony, Stockley, Delaware, 
presented a talk to the student body 
Thursday in Assembly on the subnor- 
mal individual at Stockley Colony. 
Mr. Ennis mentioned the way the 
colony is organized telling of the 
colony made clothes, colony garden 
and almost normal home-life of the 
inmates. The patients are grouped 
according to mental age with due re- 
spect to chronological age, cripples 
and physically deficient. 

The speaker gave several interest- 
ing examples of patients at the col- 
ony stressing the fact that they all 
have some peculiarities. Mr. Ennis 
implitd that care of subnormal indi- 
viduals lies in work of succeeding 

Mt. Vernon Literary 
Society Holds Meeting 

The regular weekly meeting of the 
Mt. Vernon Literary Society was held 
Wednesday. November 30, 1932, in 
the auditorium of William Smith 
Hall. The meeting was turned over 
to Emerson Slacum who had charge 
of the program for the evening. The 
society was taken by songs and talks 
to Spain, the fifth stop in its trip 
around the world. The opening fea- 
ture of the program was a song in 
Spanish by Roland Lekebusch, ac- 
companied by Lee G. Bell on the 
piano. The main speaker of the ev- 
ening was President Paul E. Tits- 
worth who told us of his trip to 
Spain. He first took the society to 
the famous Rock of Gibraltar and 
gave a very interesting description 
of this world known fortress. He 
then spoke of his passage into Spain 
giving descriptions of various cities 
and spots of interest. The history 
and natural features of the country 
ere also discussed. 

After the program a short bu: 
meeting was held. Edwin Lowe and 
Ray Wilson were sworn in as mem- 
of the society. 

There was no meeting held last 
week because of a number oi 
members went home for the holidays.

Gamber Electe 
Football Captain 

At a meeting of the football letter 
men, held yesterday, Richard M. 
"Dick" Gamber was elected Captain 
of the 1933 Washington College grid 

Gamber is a junior and succeeds 
Joseph B. Dickerson to the Captain- 
cy. The new captain has earned 
three varsity letters in football, hav- 
ing gained his early gridiron training 
as an end at Swarthmore Prep School. 
Gamber has earned an enviable rep- 
utation as an athlete during his two 
and a half years at Washington Col- 
lege, having made one or more let- 
ters in three sports: football, basket- 
ball and Lacrosse. This fighting 
Maroon and Black athlete was last 
year rated as one of the outstanding 
wing defensemen in college lacrosse 

Popular with his teammates and 
the student body, the new captain 
should make an excellent leader. 
Coach George Ekaitis expressed sat- 
isfaction that his gridders had chosen 

ch a "fighter" to lead them. 

Gamber is also outstanding 

my things outside of athletics. He 
is president of the junior class, secre- 
tary of the student council, secretary 
f the Blue Key Fraternity, and hold- 
er of a Washington College Merit 
Scholarship. He was recipient of the 
1932 Character Medal awarded last 

Dick was elected to his grid honors 
by a large vote over AI Dobkins, reg- 
ular quarterback during the past 
season, and Fritz Reinhold, sensa- 
tional punter for the Maroon and 

The Alpha Kappa fraternity held 
its rush-function last Wednesday 
nite. The program consisted of a 
trip to the movies, singing of spiri- 
tuals by the colored Junior League, 
refreshments and a talk by President 
Usilton. Coach Kibler and Prof. 
Dumschott were the faculty members 


The Phi Sigma Tau Fraternity will 
hold its rush function Tuesday, Dec. 

The Alpha Kappa and Phi iSgma 
Phi fraternities have already held 
their functions, having drawn earlier 
dates at the meeting of the interfra- 
ternity committee. 

The fraternity initiations to fresh- 
men and men spending their first 
year on the "Hill" will be given out 
Monday afternoon. President Carey 
announced that the fraternity had 
completed arrangements for the 
nights' program but he did not choose 
to give out the particulars concern- 
ing the affair. However, it is under- 
stood that Dr. Frederick G. Livin- 
good, Prof. Makosky, and Prof. Coop 
will make some contribution to events 
of the evening. 

The Phi Sigma Phi Fraternity held 
its annual "rush function" in the 
form of a dinner in the banquet room 
of the Kitty Knight House, at George- 
town, Md., on the ovosing of Monday, 
November 28. More than forty of 
those nffilinted with the Fraternity 
and their first-yonr-men guests were 
present at the occasion. A number 
of speeches appropriate to the time 
were given, notably by the honorary 
members, namely, the fratrea in facili- 
tate, Mr. Harry S, Russell, and the 
President of the Fraternity, Win. 
McA. Richards. 

Early in the eveninjr the company 
gathered in the reception rooms of 
the stately and historic old mansion 
which, surrounded by its ancient, 
formal, boxwood garden looks out up- 
on the Sassafras River below it. In. 
terested spectators were given the 
opportunity of examining closely the 
hundreds of priceless antiques which 
make the spot one of the most unus- 
ual and delightful in all of Maryland. 
After the dinner Wm. McA. Richards, 
President of the Phi Sigma Phi, gave 
an introductory talk which was fol- 
lowed by speeches by Dr. Howell, 
Professor of Economics and the Reg- 
istrar, Mr. Frank Goodwin, Assistant 
Professor of Economics, Dr. K. S. 
Buxton, Professor of Chemistry and 
Mr. H. S. Russell, Associate Editor 
of the Chestertown Enterprise. 

nformal entertainment was 
held at the Fraternity House follow- 
isg the banquet. 

Dr. Kenneth S. Buxton, Professor 
of Chemistry at Washington College, 
has changed his place of residence to 
occupy the Frazier Russell house on 
Washington Avenue. Dr. Buxton, 
since his coming to Washington a 
year ago from Trinity College, Hart- 
ford, Conn., has occupied one of the 
Baldwin Apartments on Water Street.

Christmas Holidays 
Begin December 16 

In the nnnunl Soph-Frosh game 
held on Kibler Field yesterdny after- 
noon, the first year mon showed n 
powerful football machine that n-g- 
istered four touchdowns to rout a 
beaten but desperately lighting Soph- 
omore eleven. 

Tho Freshmen, averaging ] 73 
nounds in the line nnd 170 in the 
bnckfield, resorted mainly to straight 
running plays, mixing nn off-tnckle 
play and a power lino buck with oc- 
casional effective forward passing to 
overpower tho lighter upper clnss- 
men. The Sophs forced continuity 
on the defense had little opportunity 
>pen up nn offense of any kind. 
Tho Frosh goal was never in danger. 

After a scoreless first period the 
Frosh opened the second qunrter with 
an nttack that gnined .11 yards on 
rushes and placed the ball in position 
for Evans to lake over for the first 
score of the game. Rhinehart kick- 
ed the extra point. In tho same per- 
iod after an exchange of punts, Sad- 
ler of the Sophs was viciously tackled 
by Tignor nnd fumbled into the wait- 
ing arms of Brice who sprinted 40 
ynrds unmolested over the goal line. 
The try for extrn point failed. The 
half ended shortly after. Scon- L3 
to 0. 

The Christmas holidnys for Wash 
ington College will officially begin, 
Dec. 16, 1932, and end January 3, 

The college year of 1932 will be 
terminated as far as local students 
are concerned, at 5:15 P. M. on Fri- 
day, Dec. 16, when the last regular 
lass period of the day will have been 
ompleted. The total vacation will 
last seventeen days. 

About the only event of importance 
scheduled by the college before the 
holidays is the basket ball game play- 
ed with West Chester State Teachers' 
College up at West Chester, Pa. 

Dr. P anl E. Titsworth 
Honored At U. Of Md. 

Dr. Paul E. Titsworth, president of 
Washington College, was one of eight 
men pledged to Omicron Delta Kappa, 
national honorary leadership fratern- 
ity, at an assembly in the University 
of Maryland auditorium last Wednes- 
day. Dr. Titsworth will become 
president of Alfred College next year. 

Dr. Titsworth and H. C. Byrd, vice- 
president of the University of Mary- 
land, both spoke on leadership and 
stressed its value in campus life and i 
its necessity in the business world j Ev 
after graduation. 

Tho second hnlf started with the 
Freshmen kicking off to the blue jer- 
seyed Sophomores who were forced 
to punt after two unsuccessful 
thrusts at the line. During this per- 
iod the Frosh added four more first 
downs and completed a pass, Evans 
to Rhinehart, and rushed for 70 
yards but just failed in a score when 
he quarter closed- 
After three minutes of the final 
period had been played, Evans again 
cut off tackle for his Hocond touch- 
down. Rhinehardt scored the extra 
point on an off tackle play from close 
formation. The Frosh then kicked to 
the Sophs, Sadler returning the ball 
on a 15 yard run. An attempted 
Soph, pass was knocked down by Kap- 
lan. On a beautifully executed lat- 
eral pass, Mooney fumbled but recov- 
ered to make a run of 35 yards and a 
first down, the only one netted by the 
Sophs during the entire game. A 
flock of replacements was made in 
the Frosh ranks at this time. The 
Sophs yielded the ball on downs and 
the Frosh began their last touchdows 
drive. Tignor hammered at the 
ken blue line for substantial gains. 
A Rhinehart to Tignor pass gave a 
first down. Pratt, substitute for 
Kight, found a wide gap in the center 
of the line, and then cut to the left 
racing 20 yards over the final white 
tripe for a touchdown. Rhinehart 
nade the extra point standing up, on 
run around right end from close

SATURDAY, DEC. 3, 1932 


Basketball i p now the magic word at Washington College. 
Football has been tucked away for another year and now every 
YVashiiigloninn is asking how fast a pace the 1932-33 Flying 
Pentagon is going to set. 

During a ten year period lasting from about 1920 to 1930, 
Washington College turned in such a remarkable cage record 
that in the mind of the Maryland sports fan, Washington and 
haskrlball became almost synonimus words. Coach Tom Kib- 
ler's teams turned in all sorts of remarkable feats during this 
golden age of basketball. One season was completed without 
u tie or defeat. Five victories on five successive nights were 
turned in on a trip through the South. A Maroon and Black 
basketeer scored five field goals in 59 seconds of play. The 
slate championship race developed into a contest between the 
other teams for second place honors, and in most games the 
question that worried the backers of the Flying Pentagon was 
how many points will we win by or how many points will Dum- 
schott or (iiraitis get tonight. 

However the tide has changed somewhat and the Maroon 
and Black no longer outclasses practically all its opponents. 
Tom Kibler's outfits are still feared and respected by cage op- 
ponents, but the Maroon and Black has to scrap for most of its 
victories now. Last year the Flying Pentagon had one of its 
poorest seasons in recent years and still finished tied up for sec- 
ond place in the state championship race. This year Coach 
Kibler will not be satisfied with second place honors. Such a 
role does not fit him well. Washingtonians who have watched 
the various Flying Pentagons will have to be shown a poor one 
before they believe that the Dean of Maryland Cage Coaches 
could turn out such a combination. 

Consequently, most of the students here are confidently 
looking forward to another speedy Flying Pentagon. In bas- 
ketball, spirit will not have to be drilled into the student body, 
it will develop naturally because it has become customary for 
local students to take their basketball very, very seriously." The 
present Flying Pentagon's fighting captain will' not hinder this 
situation in the least. 


In two short (?) weeks the Christmas holidays will have 
begun for Washington College students and believe you me 
•'Count de Days" until Xmns is our closest friend. From a vote 
taken in public speaking several days ago, we believe that most 
of the students have been experiencing the famous "homing 
call" with great frequency . 

Anyway we can certainly say for ourselves that we will be 
glad when the day of temporary departure arrives and we can 
grease our thumb and start "hike, hike, hiking down the high 
way." We figure that a strip of college life lasting from the 
middle of September to the middle of December is a sufficiently 
large portion to be taken hold of at once and that now a little 
time out is in order. 

The only thing that clouds this golden picture of a two 
weeks lay-off is the spectre, that becomes less and less a spectre 
as time goes by, of the mid-year exams. Alas, fellow sufferers, 
we are sorry to thus have reminded you of such an unkind sub- 
ject, it certainly grieves our soul as much as it does yours. 

At any rate it certainly will be one grand and glorious feel- 
ing to lay in bed every morning for two weeks until about ten or 
eleven o'clock. Anyone who knows the terrific mental pressure 
that the poor college student lives under, must realize that this 
period of rest is very necessary. What with term papers, 
labratones, campustry and what not it is easy to see that college 
is a truly selective institution and those who survive must cer- 
tainly be most superior beings. If you don't believe what we 
are saying ask any college student. 

Washington, the Friendly Collegi 
Many limes in the past two years this 
name hn.i had a hollow meaningless 
sound and many lips have curled 
derision at the mere mention of the 
term "friendly." For the most part 
wo believe these sneers have been 
undeserved but yet sometimes we are 
suddenly forced to pause and wonder. 

During n eerlain period each year 

citement and enthusiasm reaches 
F. high pilch on the campus. At this 
lime there is a tendency to become 
over zealous and act in a hasty man- 
ner which is later to be regretted. 

Especially was this lime Inst year 
when a fairly representative group 
of Washington men conducted them- 
B elves in an ungentlemnnly manner 
toward their fellow men. 

Di sin teres ted students, who are in 
p, more fnvorable position to observe, 
have often been amused by the 
copricious actions of members repre- 
senting various groups. 

Let's face the situation squarely 
and not debase ourselves by unjust 
dealing. How about erasing the 
words "cut throat" and "back slash- 
ers" from the college dictionary.

From what we have heard, it seems 
as though last Saturday marked a suc- 
cessful resume of relationships of all 
kinds. It might almost be known as 
"Swap Day." After swapping kicks 
and things on the gridiron in the af- 
ternoon, the rest of the day was spent 
in swapping anything from congrat- 
ulatory slaps on the back and toasts 
of burning cordiality, to hats and 
coats and dates at the dance that 
night. And the tackles made on the 
field had nothing on the tackles made 
on the dance floor. And on the 
dance floor, the taekles themselves 
had nothing on that was unnecessary 
— for 'twas a cold and wintry night. 
And yet. as cold as the gym was, 
judging from the "boiled" appear- 
ances of some of the dancers, the 
heat must have been terrific. Un- 
doubtedly, the canned heat was.

the out-of-the-way corners of the

as numerous as the freshman's, for, 
where he found twenty-three bottles

Is it still a "little white lie" when 
girl;; plead "previous engagement" to

have dates for the next Cotillion, and 
yet, strangely enough, are still hop-

With football over for the year,

his entire time to Basketball. The 
prospects for the 1932-33 season are 
exceptionally bright, and it is hoped 
that at the end of the season the 
State Championship, which hasn't 
been returned to Washington College 
since the 1930-31 team lost it, will 
again rest in the hands of the Flying 

As a nucleus, Coach Kibler has the 
following letter men to build a team 
from, Captain Johnson, 
Del Proudfoot, Harry 
Huey, Dick Gamber, 
Ward and Al Geraitis. 
In addition to these 
lettermen are Al Hodg- 
son, Al Dobkins, and 
McLain who played 
good basketball last 
season asd should see 
plenty of service this 
year. Some likely pros- 
pects from last year's 
Freshman team include 
Bill Nicholson, and 
Dale Rees. This year's 
Freshman class pre- 
sents some fine mater- 
ial in MacDonald, Hig- 
giston, Berry, Evans, 
Skipp. Caplan, Rein- 
hart, Falls and Bilancioni. Although 
these sew men haven't been given a 
chance to show what they can do, 
they will show to good advantage on 
either the Varsity or Freshman 

The team will miss the valuable 
services of last year's captain and 
guard, Ollie Robinson; and also the 
dependable shots of Frank Carozza 
who failed to return to college. Others 
missing this year are Fitzgerald and 
Parks Raisin, both lettermen of last 
year's edition of the Flying Penta- 

If early season predictions count 
for anything it is safe to say that 
Washington College will be among 
the leaders if not the leader of the 
newly-formed Maryland State Col- 
lege Basketball league.

Visitors Take Game By 8 - 

In a hard-fought football game 
last Saturday, before an enormous 
crowd, the stubborn Washington Col- 
lege eleven was finally beaten by the 
University of Delaware grid warriors. 
Tho final score 8 to was the result 
of two blocked kicks which enabled 
the boys from Newark to put across 
a safety and a touchdown. 

This game, which was intended to 
be the initial battle of a continuous 
reries of annual classics, was attend- 
ed by a swarm of representatives 
from all over the Delmarva Peninsu- 
la. Because of the unusually long 
line of cars waiting to enter Kibler 
Field for the game the time for the 
opening whistle had to be postponed 
for half an hour. A line of automo- 
biles, entirely surrounded the playing 
arer. and the grandstand was filled 
to capacity. It was the largest 
crowd ever assembled to witness a 
football game at Washington. 

All of the scoring was done during 
the first half. In the first quarter 
when the Shoremen had the ball on 
their own ten yard line Delaware- 
blocked a kick and one of their men 
fell upon the ball over the end zone 
line for a safety. Just before the 
quarter ended another kick was 
blocked near the Washington goal 
line. The ball was pushed across as 
tho second quarter started. The try 
for the point after touchdown was 
: futile. For the remainder of the 
game both teams battled on even 
I terms without any additional scor- 
I in£. 

! The contest was characterized by 
! unusual defensive strength shown by 
both teams. Several nice runs were 
made by Kemske and Green of Del- 
aware. The outstanding luminary of 
the day, however, was "Billy" Nich- 
olson who time after time made long 
(gains through the Delaware line 
practically unaided.

Michael Wallace Injured In 
Intermural Basketball Game 

Michael Wallace, a sophomore at 
Washington College, suffered a pain- 
ful injury to his neck and right 
shoulder last night when he was 
thrown against a post during an in- 
termural basketball game. 

The college physician, Dr. Harry 
G. Simpers, examined Wallace and 
then sent him to the Easton, Md., 
hospital for an X-ray examination of 
his shoulder. The injury, though 
painful, is not expected to leave any 
permanent trace. 

Wallace played a forward position 
for the Phi Sigma Tau fraternity 
against West Hall and at the time of 
his injury was dribbling down the 
south side of the court when he was 
tripped by Henry Nowark, of the 
West Hall team. Wallace lost bal 
ance and lunged full force against 
the post in the corner of playing

tions but not during regular classes." 

Prof. John D. Maltosky. — "I have 
no personal objections concerning the

Close Cage Game Expected 
To Be Played 

Dr. Powers Addresses Stu- 
dents At Jan. 12 Assembly 

The college was entertained on 
Thursday, January 12th, in Assembly 
by Dr. Edward Cardell Powers, of 
Baltimore, Md. Dr. Powers is Chap- 
lain at the Maryland State Peniten- 
tiary and has several other important 

In his speech he stressed mainly the 
point, "Let us not be weary in well 
doing." He quoted many poems and 
ditties that had a distinct bearing on 
his subject, being effectively used. 
Dr. Pawers urged the student body to 
realixe that "small things are import- 
ant and might influence their earthly 
and eternal destiny." Two books, 
"Mother Goose" and the "Bible," es- 
pecially the latter are believed by Dr. 
Powers to offer specific examples 
well as solutions, of life problems. 

The University of Delaware's fast 
moving basketball quint will appear 
here Wednesday, Jan, 18, to engage 
the Flying Pentagon in what should 
be one of the best attractions sche- 
duled for the local cage center. 

The keen sense of rivalry between 
the Peninsula's only colleges, renew- 
ed last fall after a lapse of several 
vears. should add color to what is cer- 
tain to be a great exhibition of bril- 
liant basketball. This will be the 
first game of a home and home ser- 
ies between the Flying Pentagon and 
the Newark cagers. 

On the basis of performances up 
to date there is little to choose be- 
tween these two quintets. Both 
Washington and Delaware have 
gaged the cagers of West Chester 
State Teacher's College and St. 
Josephs, of Philadelphia. The Dela- 
warians defeated St. Josephs by a 
comfortable margin while the Flying 
Pentagon was given a stiffer contest 
by the Jesuits. However, Washing- 
ton defeated West Chester by five 
points and the teachers later put the 
skids to Delaware. 

It is certain that Coach Kibler will 
have his men at peak form for this 
important game. Several of the 
Maroon and Black cagers who sport- 
ed grid uniforms last fall will be par- 
ticularly anxious to see the Delaware 
lads "take the count" to even the 
score after the 8 to licking the 
Rogers gridders pinned on the locals 
last fall. 

Delaware expects to have a large 
contingent of backers follow the team 
and the friendly but nevertheless in- 
1 tense rivalry between the two stu- 
■ dent bodies should lend tenseness to 
1 a basket ball atmosphere already 
j packed with T. N. T.

Sen. Huey P. Long for a reporter 
for the "Princetonian" according to 
an article in the Baltimore "Sun" of 
Friday morning. 

The slory relates how the Louis- 
iana Senator, wishing to create a 
"news" event for a Princeton cub re- 
porter, called up the German Embas- 
sy and declared that the German 
Government had insulted the Ameri- 
can Government. It developed that 
the insult was merely the failure of 
Herr Von Prittwitz to serve beer to 
the Southern Senator, when the lat- 
ter visited the embassy.

Student Council Requests 
Students Not To Cut Campus 

On numerous occasions, Dr. Tits- 
worth has spoken to the Student Body 
in regards to their care of the cam- 
ps. His suggestions all for our own 
benefit, have not been followed. If 
the beauty of Washington College's 
campus is to remain intact, it is ab- 
solutely necessary that each member 
of the college avoid taking "short 
cuts" to classes and refrain from run- 
ing up and down the terraces. It is 
a very simple matter. However, the 
Student Council asks the fullest co- 
operation from each student in order 
that the campus will be properly car- 
ed for and retain its beauty.

BALTIMORE. _ Johns Hopkins 
University defeated the Washington 
College basketball quintet hist night 
by ii 28 tn li!) score in one of the 
weirdest games seen at Evergreen for 
a long time. 

The Flying Pentagon wns held 
fCOVelesS for half of the first period 
despite the fnct that Hodgson and 
Johnson worked themselves loose for 
several under the basket shots. The 
Mnroon nnd Black boys from Chea- 
tei'town still seemed to be suffering 
from the jinx that caused them to 
give Btich a miserable exhibition 
against the Blue Jays last year. 

The game was featured by very 
close guarding, the score at the end 
of the half being 12 to -1, in favor of 
the Jays, Washington's 4 pnints had 
been scored by means of a field goal 
and two foul shots. 

In the second half, the game wns 
speeded up considerably by both 
teams and consequently there was 
more scoring. Don Kelly, captain 
and star guard for the Hopkins quint 
was high senrer for the night with a 
total of 7 points. However, the 
Jay's star was held down much bet- 
ter this year than last when he scored 
21 points against the Flying Penta- 

The Washington quint had super- 
ior floor work and passing and conse- 
quently secured more elose-in shots. 
However, Hopkins was far more ef- 
fective in capitalizing on whatever 
shois Ihey obtained. 

Del Pmudfoot, tall and supple for- 
ward for the Flying Pentagon, enter- 
ed the game in the waning minutes 
of play and though still suffering 
from a back injury that has kept him 
out of practice for two weeks, improv- 
ed the appearance of his team almost 
one hundred per cent. 

This defeat for the Flying Penta- 
gon puts Tom Kibler's boys with 
l heir backs to the wall as far as the 
• ace for the Maryland Intercollegiate 
Basketball championship is concerned. 
The Maroon and Blnck plays Mt. St. 
Mary's up at Emmittsburg tonight 
and a defeat there will virtually elim- 
*./.inate them from title consideration.

defeated quints now left in the race.

A personal experience brought home to us, not long ago, a 
condition existing in the library that we most decidedly think 
needs correction. We are speaking of the matter of 'library 

We borrowed an old arithmetic book from the stacks, look- 
ed ui» whal we wanted and left the book on our desk for 
about a month. At the end of which time we remembered the 
book, look it back to the library, and found that it was two 
weeks overdue and that we owed a 28 cent line. This in itself 
u;is not so bad, but when out of curiosity we asked the girl at 
the desk how large a line we would have been allowed to run 
up befort being notified and found that the fine might run up 
I" a dollar on a book not worth half that much the significance 
of the matter struck us. 

We see no reason why such a condition should be allowed 
to continue to exist. We renli/.e that the students must be 
forced to obey library rules and that fines are the most effective 
method of accomplishing this. But let tis make our point clear; 
we do not object to lines but the manner in which they are al- 
lowed to accumulate. 

dent's over-due book was not posted he would not be liable to 
any fine whatever. 

Incidentally it. is not our 28 cents that is worrving us. That 
IS long gone and we cerlainly will not break the over-due rul- 
ing in the future. We have learned to expect no quarter it we 

We would personally appreciate an adjustment of the 
matter spoken of above and we know that many other students 
feel similarly. It would be taken as a sign that the library is 
really trying to cooperate with the student body.

wards. A curious observer, not ac- 
customed to sueh antics asked me if

There was one very striking thing that we noticed when 
looking over the group pictures for the "Pegasus." It was that 
certain people always occupied the front row of every picture 
they were in. We are not trying to criticize these people for 
we will frankly admit that we are not capable of judging 
whether or not their faces are as beneficial to the appearance 
of each group as they evidently thought them to be. The 
question seems to have been already decided by more com- 
petent judges who had no doubt at all concerning the question. 
We do not doubt that the editor of the "Pegasus" has already 
mentally thanked these individuals for the concern they dis- 
played for the welfare and appearance of his production Such 
an example of unselfish and altruistic action is certainly re- 
freshing, when one considers how eager people usually are in 
trying to help themselves alone! 

It has been remarked that the perfect combination for 
success is to be good and know it. Likewise, failure is guaran- 
teed to the person who hasn't the goods but does not know it. 
If these two facts are so, we can predict for our front row 
friends a perfect example of — but again we had better leave 
the judging to more competent people. Ask these people per- 
sonally. We know that they have an answer ready.

Vanity suffered a serious blow when 
he Senior photograph proofs were 
returned from the studios. Yet, in 
all fairness to all concerned, it must 
be admitted that if some of the pic- 
tures we have been were published 
in the Pegasus, the studio responsible 
for these masterpieces would stand 
an excellent chance of losing future 
contracts. The individual photo- 
graphs are certainly — individual! 
However it must be remembered that 
'he man who wielded the camera was 
a photographer — not a magician. 

From the gratifying way in which 
he varsity basketball team handled 
its first two games, it looks as though 
he 1933 Flying Pentagon is headed 
for a new state title. But, a suc- 
c?ssful season calls for more than a 
fighting basketball team. Even a 
fighting team can go down if it does 
not have real support from the 
stands. Anyone can yell for a team 
that is winning, but it takes real 
school spirit to yell harder when the 
team is losing — when yells are need- 
ed most. We have the yells — we 
have the cheer-leaders — we have a 
real basketball team. And yet there 
was not one organized cheer through- 
out the entire home game with St. 
Joseph's. Why? 

Al 'hough the past week end 
brought most of us only a good Sat- 
urday night frolic. It seems as

a wife. But, of course, we only 

'he coming inter-class basketball 
tournament promises some unusual 
basketball. However, the season is 
still too young to pick winners — un-

Class team. Their basketball is out-

Coach Eka iti s Giving 
Series Of Boxing Lessons 

A revised Lacrosse schedule for 
| the 1933 Washington College b 
I presents the Mt. Washington Club of 
Baltimore, and Swarthmore College, 
of Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, as two 
teams of opposition. These two 
stick teams are taking the place of 
ihe formerly scheduled University of 
Virginia and Western Maryland Col- 
lege teams, which have temporarily 
it least, dropped the game from their 
spring sports program. These two, 
along with St. John's, the University 
of Md., and the World Champion 
Johns Hopkins Ten will round out the 
toughest, schedule in the country. Le- 
high also will be engaged. 

The innovation of several new La- 
crosse rules this spring will make the 
game better all-around. The shorter 
playing field of eighty instead of a 
hundred yards will give the specta- 
tors the opportunity to witness all 
the play. This decrease in length 
will also probably throw more weight 
on the shoulders of the mid-field 
men. In addition to this, the "La- 
crosse Twelves" no longer exists. 
Ten men will take the field this year 
for battle. 

In these respects, Washington Col- 
lege should profit. In the first place, | 
there are ten letter men back on the j 
squad and secondly, the Maroon and 
Black exhibited last year a tireless [ 
midfield that could hold its own fair-l 
ly well with any opposition.

Coach Kibler is missing the ser- 
vices of Del Proudfoot who has been 
out since Christmas. The play of 
Hodgson, Skipp, Ward and Huey has 
been very pleasing to the mentor. 
Hodgson especially seems set for a 
fine year. His agility and fight has 
already been outstanding in his 
team's play. These four along with 
Captain "Dick" Johnson who is slow- 
ing rounding into form following his 
tonsil operation will take the floor to- 
night for a game that will be closely 

Although Mt. St. Mary's lost to 
Loyola the other night, they still are

Mounts are especially hard to defeat

kins are two fine basketballers and 
are ably assisted by others. The

Students Organize 
To Oppose War 

Delegates Elected To Visit 

John Lord Honored At 

December 15 Assembly 

NEW YORK. — "The National Stu- 
dent Congress Against War repre- 
sents one of the most important de- 
velopments among the students of the 
United States," according to Profes- 
sor George S. Counts, cf Columbia 
University. "It suggests that Amer- 
ican students, like students in other 
lands, are beginning to exhibit a gen- 
uine interest and concern in social 
and political affairs." 

Delegates have been elected in col- 
leges in all parts of the country to 
attend the Congress, it has been an- 
nounced by Edmund Stevens, chair- 
man of the national committee which 
is laying the plans for this nation- 
wide meeting, which is to be held in 
Chicago on December 28th and 29th. 

Among the speakers at the Con- 
gress will be Jane Addams, Scott 
Nearing, Upton Class, Joseph Free- 
man, J. B. Matthews, and Sherwood 
Anderson. Nearing and Matthews 
are both members of the national 
committee, which includes in addi- 
tion Henri Barbusse, Corliss Lamont, 
H. W. L. Dana, Robert Morss Lovett, 
George S. Counts, and others promi- 
nent in the anti-war movement. Stu- 
dent representatives from many col- 
leges and universities are also mem- 
bers of the committee. 

Announcement has been made of 
the receipt of numerous endorse- 
ments of the undertaking. Countee 
Cullin, distinguished poet, has de- 
clared: "It is heartening to know that 
the fight against war is originating in 
the hearts and minds of those on 
whom war most depends for its vic- 
tims, the youth of the world. A unit- 
ed front made by youth and students 
against war should mean its utter and 
absolute repudiation." 

"The students of America and 
throughout the world cannot remain 
unconcerned and untouched by the 
danger of war," the national com- 
mittee has asserted. "Students in 
China are being murdered and crush- 
ed by the war movements already 
taking place; students in Germany 
are being armed by Fascism for their 
own destruction; students in the 
Latin-America are suffering the full 
force of American and English im- 
morialism whenever the puppet gov- 
ernments are menaced ; throughout 
the world, students are being 'edu- 
cated' by text books, by administra- 
tions, by military authorities to be- 
come willing leaders in crushing re- 
sistance to war, in leading regiments 
to save profits." 

"War must be combatted," the 
statement continues. "Whatever may 
be our views of how best to combat 
it, we students must join in an organ- 
ized protest against war, with a de- 
termined effort to do what we can 
lay down a program for effective 

John Lord, a Sophomore at Wash 
ington College was honored in 


Assembly of Dec. 15 when Mr. Harry 
Russell in behalf of Mr. Wade G. 
Bounds, presented him the Wade G. 
Bounds gold football. 

This gold football is presented an- 
nually to the one who has done most 
for the promotion of Washington 
College football. The recipient isn't 
necessarily confined to a member of 
the first team, but may be a member 
of the second team, or one who 
doesn't play football. Mr. Bounds, 
of the Washington College Alumni 
Association, is the donator. Last 
year Robert L. Cary, of the class of 
1932, received the award. 

"Johnny" Lord was the receipant 
because of his fine all-around playing, 
and also because of the great fighting 
spirit he exhibited in each contest. 
Mr. Russell emphasized the fact that 
Lord had played at different times at 
the center, guard and tackle positions, 
attesting to his versatility. 

Lord is a native of Cumberland, 
Maryland, and a graduate of Alle- 
ghany High School in that city. 

He played his first football there. 
We hope him even greater success in 
the next two football campaigns, and 
congratulate the Coaches upon their

It has been of great interest to the 
faculty and student body of Washing-

The Blue Key Minstrel Show sche- 
duled to take place on January 20, 
in Bill Smith, is something to look 
forward to. It will be something dif- 
ferent to be seen in these parts and 
consists of a well harmonized chorus. 
Some of the soloists will be Roland 
Lekebush, Charlie Harris, D. W. 
Clark, Jerry Giriatis, Joe Mooney, Bill 
McDonald, Dave Wallace.

sueh men as Ellery Ward, John Lord, 
Phil Skipp and Harry Huey holding 
down the end men berths. 

Also a few dance steps will be 
shown to the audience by a well 
known dancer. 

So what do you say we all give our 
support and come see this show for 
only 85 cents. 

Joseph M. Messick, '23, and wife, 
were among the many welcome visi 
tors at the Alumni Office on Home 
coming-Day. After graduation h< 
taught- for a year or two at Salisbury 
and then entered the University of 
Pennsylvania Medical School. He re- 
ceived his M. D. degree in 1928. He 
spent a year as an interne at the 
Reading Hospital. A fellowship ap- 
pointment for three years made it 
possible for him to take a special 
course in the Graduate School of 
Medicine, the Mayo Clinic, at the 
University of Minnesota. He com-

Under new business a motion stat- 
ing "Smoking is now forbidden only 
in the emridors and Chnpel of Wil- 
liam Smith Hall, and that smoking in 
the class rooms is now up to the dis- 
cretion of the instructor"; was made 
and carried. This rule does away 
with the old rule which prohibited 
all smoking in William Smith Hall. 

The replacing of the Soph-Frosh 
tug-of-wnr of past years by some 
other inter-class contest was discus- 
sed. Pres. Ryan requested that this 
matter be considered by the members 
and brought up at the next mooting, 

Fred Usilton requested the support 
of the council for the student Budget 
which is to be presented before the 
student body by the Blue Key Fra- 
ternity in the near future. Pres 
Ryan assured Blue Key of the coun 
cil's support in this matter. 

Ralph Miller proposed that some of 
Iho Rat Rules should be removed at 
'his lime, but his proposal met with 
little approval and was dropped. 

There being no further business 
the meeting was adjourned.

Activity Fee Of Seventy-Five 
Cents Added To Student Bill 

It i3 a well known fact that various 
organizations on the Hill are hamp- 
ered in thoir work by the lack of 
funds. The financial burdens are 
carried by a few who are members 
of one or more of the groups. A plan 
has been delivered by the Blue Key 
Fraternity whereby the representa- 
tive bodies such as the Student Coun- 
cil, Blue Key, Y. M. C. A., Y. W. C. 
A. and the Mt. Vernon Society may 
receive a fixed sum each semester. 
The plan calls for the small sum of. 
76c to be added to the school bill for 
each semester to be known as the 
Student Activities fee. This plan 
has been approved by President Tits- 
worth and Business Manager Johns, 
and a petition will be circulated be- 
fore exams for the signature of ev- 
cry student giving permission to the 
Business Manager to place the foe on 
the next semester's bill. 

It is hoped that this plan will great- 
ly aid organizations to improve their 
work and be of greater service to the 
Student body. —Fred Usilton.

and we'd like 

to talk wiih you 

about it 

I// races of people since the beginning 
of lime, so for as we have been able 
to read, hare had some hind of a pipe 
and have smoked something — whether 
they called it tobacco or what not. 

AND since smoking a pipe is so different 
l from smoking a cigar or cigarette, 
we made a most painstaking, scientific 
study in an effort to make, if we could, 
a tobacco which was suited to pipes. 

We found out, first, that there was a 
kind of tobacco that grew in the Blue 
Grass section of Kentucky called White 
Burley, and that there was a certain kind 
of this tobacco which was between the 
tobacco used for cigarettes and the to- 
bacco used for chewing tobacco. It is 
litis tobacco which is best for pipes. 

We found out that Mr. J. N. Wellman. 
many years ago, made a pipe tobacco 
which was very popular. But it was 
never advertised and after he passed 
away nothing more was heard about it. 
We acquired this Wellman Method and 
that is what we use in making Granger. 


Next was the cut. We knew that fine 
tobacco burnt hot because it burnt so 
fast. You could hardly hold your pipe in 
your hand, it got so hot at times. So 
remembering how folks used to "whittle" 
their tobacco we cut GRANGER just like 
"whittle"* tobacco — " Rough Cut." It 
smokes cooler, lasts longer and never 
gums the pipe. 

So far, so good. Now we wanted to 
sell this tobacco for 10c. Good tobacco 

Tlie Granger pouch 
keeps the tobacco fresh 

— right process — cut right. So we put 
Granger in a sensible soft foil pouch 
instead of an expensive package, knowing 
that a man can't smoke the package. 

GRANGER has not been on sale very 
long, but it has become a popular smoke. 
And we have vet to know of a man who 
started to smoke it, who didn't keep on. 
Folks seem to like it.

Student Assembly 
Held Friday 


Discuss Improvement 
Honor Code 


A special assembly of the entire 
Washington College student body 
was held yesterday in William Smith 
Hall to discuss ways and means of 
improving the functioning of the 
honor system at the college. 

The assembly was called to order 
by Hubert Ryan .president of the 
Student Council. Mr. Ryan led up 
to the business of the assembling by 
pointing out the fact that violations 
of the hosor code have been increas- 
ing in numbers of late and that a 
general laxness on the part of the 
student body has been developing in 
regard to the honor code. 

Richard Gamber, secretary of the 
student Council, next addressed the 
assembly, stating that he acknow- 
ledged the fact that the Council had 
not been functioning properly but he 
continued on to say that the Council 
would guarantee strict observance 
of the rules of the student govern- 
ment association in all future cases. 
Miss Genevieve Carvel next spoke, 
as representative of the Women's 
Student Council. Miss Carvel's 
speech was followed by short talks 
by Mr. Ready and Mr. Sadler. Both 
of these men expressed confidence in 
the Student government association 
as a workable organization. 

Following these talks Jhe assem- 
bly was turned over to a discussion 
of any plans or suggestions that the 
student body ar a whole mgiht have 
to make. The discussion was direct- 
ed by Joseph Dickerson, Vice-Presi- 
dent of the Student Council. Dur- 
ing the discussion the question of 
whether or not the Council intended 
to support the entire body of rules 
of the student government arose. 
The consideration of whether the 
Council should or should not handle 
drinking cases consumed a great deal 
of the discussion. 

Near the close of the assembly it 
was requested by Miss Emily Jewell 
and Mr. Boyd Hopkins that a vote be 
taken to decide whether the stu- 
dent government association should 
be retained or not. However, it was 
decided to postpone the actual vote 
until some later date to be fixed by 
the Student Council. 

The assembly was then dismissed 
without further business being 
brought up.

secretary of the Association of Amer- 
ican Colleges, addressed the Wash' 
ington College student body last 
Thursday in William Smith Hall. 



Within the past few weeks one 
freshman after another has dropped 
out from the first year class at 
Washington College. The causes 
are numerous. But the main reason 
is the lack of funds caused by the de- 

"Mike" Higgiston the most popu- 
lar freshman here was the first to 
leave. He is now working in Water- 
bury, Conn. He was followed by 
Edward Nawak, of Wilmington. 
"Bill" MacDonald the class athlete 
and crooner left a few weeks ago. 
Others who left are: S. S. Baker,

Bullock Applies For 
Postmaster's Position 

Roland E. Bullock, a senior I it 
Washington College, recently appl 1

ton, Pa. Bullock is a resident of 

On the evening of Friday, Febru- 
ary 3rd. the Washington College Co- 
tillion Club held the third of its ser- 
ies of five formal dances which are 
given throughout the scholastic year. 

Due to the proximity of Feb. 14, 
the occasion was known as the "Val- 
entine Cotillion." In harmony with 
the spirit of the affair, the gymnas- 
ium was artistically decorated in red 
and white. The windows were hid- 
den by single, full red hearts placed 
upon a white background. All lights 
were encased in white, upon which 
numerous smaller hearts were sil- 
houted, and from which a series of 
miniature hearts dangled. The or- 
chestra played from a low plat-form 
at one end of the gymnasium and 
had as its background a gigantic red 
heart, the strings of which led out 
to numerous smaller hearts bearing 
the names of the more prominent 
campus couples. That this distinct- 
ly original touch met with the ap- 
proval of the students is evidenced 
by the fact that the last notes of the 
orchestra had scarcely died away 
before the platform and its decora- 
tions were rushed "en masse" by 
souvenir hunters seeking the parti' 
cular heart which bore his or her (or 
their) names. 

The patrons of the Valentine Co- 
tillion were: Mr. and Mrs. James G. 
Beck, Mr. and Mrs. William B. Usil- 
ton, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Kibler, Dr. 
Gertrude Van A. Ingalls, Dean Mar- 
garet Brewer, Mrs. John Speicher 
and Miss Anna Smith. 

The Cotillion Club Committee, 
which controls the destines of the 
entire series of dances is composed 
of: William McA. Richards, John 
Gray McLain, DeWitt Forman 
Clarke, James D. Davis III,
